An optimist sees an opportunity in every calamity; a pessimist sees a calamity in every opportunity.

---Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill

Another Famous Star : Lin Shuhao


With the development of modern society, more and more countries are beginning to attach great importance to sports.  In some Americans' minds basketball is a sport for white and black people. Some think China's basketball players can't play an important role in the NBA, but to many people's surprise, there is a Chinese American who is attracting the attention of a number of people with his outstanding performance.  His name is Lin Shuhao.

    All of us, especially Chinese people, are quite proud of him.  He is a unique basketball player because he has a strong educational background; he graduated from Harvard.  Though he was undervalued and even cut from many teams, he still insisted on practicing basketball and exercising every day, to improve his skill. He believed that even if he continued to work hard he could still get good marks.  Because of his sprit, he has attracted many people.  Of course, he takes advantage of his high level of skill to do things well.  What's more, his success also depends on him grasping every chance he gets.

    Lin Shuhao represents China's glory and is winning many people's respect.  All of us are quite proud of him.



Yulin University’s Sports Meet


Undoubtedly, sports play an essential part in human beings' lives that can’t be replaced by anything else.

     There is a wide range of ball sports and physical sports. At our school we have basketball, volleyball, football, tennis, ping pong, badminton, etc.

      We can choose to do body exercise if we cannot afford to buy the expensive materials needed for the previously mentioned ball sports. It is not the type of sports but our perseverance with it that matters. In other words, perseverance is good for our health.

      It is advisable to spare 20 to 30 minutes a day for some physical training. Running is a simple and good choice. There is no denying that running or jogging is easier than other sports and it can strongly influence our physique. By getting up 30 minutes earlier to do some exercise, we will feel more active for the whole day. As a consequence we can study or work far more efficiently.

      Of course, sports can also help us avoid some discomfort to our backs or eyes. I dare say that exercising every day keeps the doctor away. However, different people have different physical health which requires them to make different but sound choices. We, university students, should treasure the equipment with which the school provides us, seizing PE as an opportunity to learn. In terms of health, we have no choice but to keep it up by doing sports for we can do nothing without it.
