What do sports to do with culture?
My favourite sport
Why is sport so important?
Karate is my favorite sport. I love it so much because it gives me a feeling of happiness that i can't experience with any other sport. Competitions are thrilling and very rewarding in terms of experience. - Miguel Albino
My all-time favourite sport has to be karate. I don't just see it as a sport, but as a whole way of life. It teaches values like respect and self-control, helps you focus, provides a distraction from your problems and, not less importantly, keeps you fit. I've been doing it for 6 years now, and couldn't imagine my life without it. - Daniel Santos

Hockey has already been played 4000 years ago but the rules were a bit different. It´s been played in India, Persia, Japan and Greece. Nowadays it is mainly played in the Netherlands, India, Great Britian, Switzerland and Germany. But only 1840 the first Hockey club was founded, it was in London. Since 1908 Hockey is an Olympic sport. Hockey was always played from men and women, it´s one of the few sports where there are equal numbers of men and women since ever. A hockeyball weighs about 160g so it hurts if you get a ball in your face.

On the picture you can see a goal it is 3.66m long and 2.14 high. In the goal there´s a goalkeeper in his full kit.
This is the striking area. It´s the dotted line you can shoot at the goal from.
This is a short corner. It starts on the external line. Look at a video of a short corner!
This is the edge of the field – if the ball gets over this line, the other team gets the ball. Nobody is allowed to attack until the ball is rolling again
