People go in for sport for a lot of reasons: to prove something to themselves or to the world, to lose weight, to be in a good physical shape, to achieve success and fame (with is possible if you are an Olympic Champion for instance), or they do it just because they like it, they enjoy training their muscles, being fit makes them feel healthy and free.
But there are kinds of sport that may be viewed as hobbies or even art, or the ways to express yourself.
I would like to give a couple of examples of such hobbies.
To be a figure skater you need to have strong legs and arms (but they can be trained of course), you need to be able to do all kinds of maneuvers. But it’s not only that, it’s also about dancing on ice, it is about face expression, and it is a very hard work. The most amazing thing about it is that it is almost like dancing in the air, partners look like they are flying and it seems they are far away, on a different planet and don’t even see us.
