Sport general, in Britain

Страница: 2/2

Englishmen pay much attention to swimming, rowing and walking. The most famous boat race in England is between Oxford and Cambridge. It is usually held on the Thames River. A lot of people come to watch it.

There are some racing competitions in England. They are motor-car racing, dog-racing, donkey-racing, boat-racing, horse-racing. All kinds of racings are popular in England. It is interesting to see the egg-and-spoon race. The runner, who takes part in this competition, must carry an egg in a spoon. It is not allowed to drop the egg.

I must speak about the Highland Games in Scotland. All competitors wear Highland dress. There are such competi­tions as putting the weight, tossing the caber and others. The English are great lovers of sports.
