Question 31: Choose the letter A, B, C or D to answer these following questions.
"Most of us are interested in one kind of sport or another, even if we don’t go in for it actively. Lots of people take up a particular sport at an early age, for example tennis, skiing, or ice-skating. If they get up to a suitably high standard, they may go in for local competitions or even championships. But special training is hard work and most young people don’t keep it up. Many of them opt out when they come up against tough competition. To become a professional in any sport, you have to go through with a strict training schedule. And it’s not easy! It means doing without some of life’s little pleasures, too. For example, to build up your physical strength you may have to stick to a special diet and give up some of your favorite foods. Smoking and alcohol are out, and to keep fit you have to work out every day. Sometimes it all pays off, but the road to success is long and there are no guarantee. No wonder that countless young talents decide to settle for a regular job instead, and, as far as professional sport is concerned, for looking on as spectators."
