Many people do sports on their personal initiative. They go in for skiing, skating, table tennis, swimming, volley-ball, football, body- building, etc.
All necessary facilities are provided for them: stadiums, sport grounds, swimming pools, skating rinks, skiing stations, football fields. Sport is paid much attention to in our educational establishments. Gymnastics is a part of children's daily activities in the kindergartens. Physical culture is compulsory subject at schools and colleges. Professional sport is also paid much attention to in our country. In city, where I live, there are diferent sporting societies, clubs and complexes.
Practically all kinds of sports are popular in our country, but football, gymnastics and tennis enjoy the greatest popularity.
