SOME SPORT RECORDS
THE OLDEST

Archery dates back a long way. Even 8000 years B.C. it was used for hunting. Homer's Iliad tells us that archery had become a proper sport, with precise rules and organised competitions by the l2th century B.C. However, running and wrestling are the oldest sporting activities that resemble our present-day sports: the first competitions took place between 2750-2600 B.C.
THE FASTEST 3

e6cd64f3-5f79-4ea6-aa4c-f1a0ce55d7b9.doc

Try to guess in which sport man reaches the highest speed (naturally, without using motors or other mechanised means). It's parachuting: you can reach a speed of 1,005 km per hour in free fall. Do you know in which sport the ball travels fastest? It's called pelota. In this game the ball can travel up to 300 km per hour. With electronic measuring a golf ball has been seen to reach a speed of 273 km per hour.
THE HIGHEST WAVE

The waves in Waimea Bay, Hawaii, are often 9-10 metres high. It is virtually impossible to surf if the waves are any higher. On 3rd April 1968 a 15 m wave (the highest ever) hit Minole (Hawaii). A young man called Holua was on his board when he saw the wave coming. He only had one possibility if he wanted to save his life: he had to get on his surf-board and ride the giant wave. He got back to the beach safely, setting a record that will probably never be broken.
THE SHORTEST PIT STOP

On 30th May 1976, on the tenth lap of the Indianapolis 500 Miles the American car driven by Robert W. Unser ran out of petrol. He stopped at the pits, filled up the tank and was off again in only 4 seconds! It's the shortest pit stop in the history of motor-racing.

3. A Letter to the Editor (U.S.)

SPORTS SHOULD BE FUN DEAR ANN LANDERS, I am a senior in high school who has always enjoyed participating in athletic events. Three coaches in our school act as if high-school sports were a business. If the team doesn't win, they get furious with the players and make us feel as if we have let everyone down. If a person is in sports for a living, I can see why winning might be important, but why should high-school competition be so important? I enjoy sports, but I consider it healthy exercise, good competition and fun. I hate all the unbearable pressure put on the players to win. Please, Ann, tell the athletic directors that many guys like myself have been turned off by their attitude. I have participated in competitions and games outside school and I had never felt the terrific pressure to win until I played on a high-school team. Just sign me: A. N. Y. GRIPER DEAR GRIPER, Imagine that you are the editor and write a letter!
SITUATION WHAT SHALL WE DO?

JOKE

A football manager died and went to heaven, where he was given charge of a truly immortal eleven. The only drawback was that there was no opposition. Then he got a telephone call from the devil. "How about fixing up a game with my team?" asked old Nick. "By all means," replied the manager. "But I think it's only fair to warn yon that I have the greatest players of all on my side." "Perhaps," agreed old Nick, "but I have all the referees!"
