EXTREME SPORTS

(1) What do snowboarding, base jumping, skydiving, downhill mountain biking, and hang gliding have in common? They are all considered “extreme” sports because they involve some degree of danger, and lots of excitement.

(2) Many people choose these alternative sports over traditional options like soccer or tennis. Patrick, 25, started snowboarding when he was eight. He still feels he needs to be constantly on the edge. Catherine, 47, started bungee jumping a few years ago simply to add some variety to her life. Indeed, extreme sports, or alternative sports as others prefer to call them, attract people of all ages, including parents with their children. Paul, 35, enjoys skateboarding and mountain biking with his 10-year-old daughter. He says that skateboarding requires as much, if not more, training and skill as soccer, basketball, or boxing. Many parents like him feel that some of these sports create the perfect opportunity to teach children about safety, self-confidence and endurance, while engaging in new physical activities.

(3) Undoubtedly, fear is a special component of these cool sports that attract young and mature audiences alike. However, according to experts, with the development of appropriate equipment that enables us to do sports safely, risk of injury can be reduced. Unfortunately, in most cases, safety equipment is expensive, raising the cost of participating. For example, a 30-second bungee jump may cost from $50 to over $300 in different parts of the world.

варіанти відповідей
