    I play :
    Basketball
    Hockey
    Rounders

    but my sport is ULTIMATE FRISBEE !!!

    It's all about the team, you can't win it on your own, but you need the speed, the agility and the disc skills to get that point.

    Love it !!

    Octopush. Haven't done it for ages but I'm determined to get back into it when I move to Oxford. I love it because its fun, I love playing around in water making it more appealing than just swimming and it provides an amazing workout.
    What is that? Never heard of it.

    How has no one mentioned rowing yet?

    Definitely my sport, once my left knee dislocated a few too many times and I had to quit athletics .

    Why? It's...beautiful. A true strength/endurance sport (it's not cardio :mad:) that also requires balance and elegance and lends itself to my long lean body.
    And when everyone is moving in the exact same way and pushing with every ounce of their being, and the sun is shining and the river is stretching out in front of you...beautiful :love:.
    ARGH I absolutely love love love this sport. Was devastated after athletics was over but every cloud has a silver lining.

    Cycling (specifically road). One of the most graceful and aggressive sports in the world. it requires complete fitness and mental agility. You can do virtually no effort or you can black out.
    And best of all it's available to virtually everybody.

    That's similar to a friend of mine - she was a middle distance runner but had repeated problems with shin splints and then a bike injury which stopped her running for quite a while but now she's been rowing for a couple of years pretty competetively.

    I know there are a few rowers about on the forum (Keith Lemon is particularly good, as I recall). I would probably still be rowing myself if I hadn't got back injuries but after time off I realise I'm not built for it at all (too short, badly proportioned) and there are plenty of other sports I enjoy that I can do better at. Still, I'll always be fond of rowing for being the thing that made me look at sports from a more serious perspective - training consistently to improve instead of just turning up now and then to have some fun.

    Football! Played it since I was very young, probably 7/8, so about 12/13 years. I like the competitive side of it and the fun side of it. Being quite good at it helps too

    Heh no, I was #44 in the UK last year for XC, but not at the moment..

    My favourite race on track is the 800m. I got 2:03.64 when I was 16, but I've never really been anywhere near it since. I really wanna go sub 2 at least once.
    Wow, when my boyfriend was 16 he did 2.01.01, within a year he's 1.55 so it is possible- then again his life is me and training really so guess it is commitment.

    hehe, well i havnt run for GB for a couple of years but when i was 14 i ran 200m in 24.41secs... and at the age of 15 i was running it in 23.60secs... i got a call last month saying the 15yr old kid they got running now cant break 24secs so i must of done something rite... i just love my skl records... ive got year9 and 10 records but i didnt run in yr11... thou my year 9 record is faster than any kids ran in yr11 :P (sry i like to boast about my speed sry)

    Haha don't worry, my boyfriend has the majority of the school running records for year 9, 10 and 11, and he loves the fact they've been nowhere near beaten yet. He's also got the island junior 800m record, so yer, I'm used to the boasting I can't wait til I can actually have something decent to boast to him about lol.
