Among all the sportsmen in the world I like Klitschko brothers most of all. Vitali Klitschko (born 19 July 1971) and Wladimir Klitschko (born 25 March 1976), collectively known as ehe Klitschko brothers are Ukrainian heavyweight boxers.

They live in Germany and in Ukraine, where they are media stars. Both brothers made their professional debut on November 6, 1996 in Hamburg. Since then both have been heavyweight world champions in boxing. They have stated they will never fight each other. After a series of injuries, Vitali had a career break of almost four years. In his comeback fight in Berlin on October 11, 2008 he defeated Samuel Peter to regain the title of WBC world heavyweight champion. At that time Wladimir was already

world heavyweight champion with the. That was the first time in history with two brothers world champions at the same time. Vitali retained the Heavyweight Championship in 2011. On July 2, 2011, Wladimir won the WBA Title, which means that the Klitschko brothers hold all of the World Heavyweight Titles collectively.

The Klitschko brothers jointly run the professional boxing promotion companies “K2 Promotions” and “K2 East Promotions”, as well as the “Klitschko Brothers Fund”, a charity organisation. They appear together on German TV shows and commercials, have a common website klitschko. com and support each other’s training and fights. Now they have a combined professional boxing record of 101 wins (90KO’s) and 5 defeats.

I think we should support out school team even if it wasn’t victorious. We shouldn’t be fair weather fans. The forward of the team we are playing with was disqualified for taking drugs. This is the most valuable player. So we are having a chance to win. Anyway I am a die hard fan of our team and I am going to cheer them.

I think we should support out school team even if it wasn’t victorious. We shouldn’t be fair weather fans. One can’t always win but it is very important to lose with dignity. Nobody is to be blamed. But it’s too early to think about losing. I heard good news. The forward of the team we are playing with was disqualified for taking drugs. This is the most valuable player and the team will play without him. So we are having a chance to win. Anyway I am a die hard fan of our team and I am going to cheer them. But they should try hard or they could became pathetic losers.

I say, Tom, why don’t you sign up for basketball.

You are the tallest in our class and I think you will do well.

This is a team game and you will practise how to work in team. How to help your teammates in order to win.

I will tell you a history of this game.

In the winter of, 1891-1892, Dr. James Naismith, an instructor in the YMCA Training College (now Springfield College) at Springfield, Mass., deliberately invented the game of basketball in order to provide indoor exercise and competition for the students between the closing of the football season and the opening of the baseball season. He fixed peach baskets overhead on the walls at opposite ends of the gymnasium and organized teams to play his new game in which the purpose was to throw the ball into the basket. Because Dr. Naismith had eighteen available players when he invented the game, the first rule was: “There shall be nine players on each side.” But now the five-player standard was adopted when the game spread over the country. U. S. soldiers brought basketball to Europe in World War I, and it soon became a worldwide sport.
