QW 062612 “Virtual Online Discussion 0626”

Today’s article: Cuba Takes Pride in Its Boxers

Discussion A
1) Cubans do well in boxing. What sport do you think your countrymen are good at? Please explain the reasons for this.
As far as I know, our countrymen like playing baseball and soccer when they’re young, and they start playing golf after they’ve grown up. Being physically less demanding than baseball and soccer, golf is loved by elderly people in Japan, my father included. I have no idea why those sports are so popular among the Japanese guys, to be honest. One thing that I’m sure is that I’ll never like playing golf myself. For me, it’s not a sport, but a means of socializing when played by lay people.

2) Does your government do a lot to promote sports or help people train for sports? Why do you think so?
In terms of promoting and funding sports, I think the Japanese government is notorious for its stinginess. Take the Olympic medalists for instance. They’re basically amateur athletes, so they need to be supported financially to keep themselves trained in order to compete in the Olympics. What the government would do for them is award a very small amount of money to medal-winning athletes only after they’ve accomplished the feat. The government seems to have no intension to support and promote amateur sports financially. I cannot help feeling sorry for those athletes who could’ve earned much more respect and financial support from the government.
