There is only one idea comes into my mind as a topic for my training of writing - sport. I wanna share my thoughts on sport, which kinds I like or even provide, which I don't. It is not necessarily will be interesting, I warn you;) First, I must say that I am not big sportsman, and I have never been that. I mean I love to watch as a good pastime, but myself I don't do that. Some people categorizes 2 groups - active and passive ones, so accordingly to them I fall to the latter. Not to horse around for too long, I will say that my best sport currently is MMA, and to be more precise, UFC. Last year and a half, I have been watching it with no skipping any tournament, that takes place. I don't know why exactly MMA has become so attractive to me ( I have never been the bully who constantly fights and provokes others, I've been the opposite of it, indeed), but for some reason it has happened. Besides MMA, I like classy old box, especially when fighters from my country perform ( Fortunately, there are a bunch of world-class ones such as Usik, Lomachenko, in the past - brothers Klychko). And football ( or as americans would say "soccer"), of course. Like many other children over the world, I played a lot at the time, and watched a lot. I will never forget my first the World championship on 2006. I was 8 then, but that was awesome. Presently I watch over the sport a bit more rarely, but never miss big matches, let it be the semifinals of the LOH, or matches of the FIFA/UEFA world's events. So I am glad if you are still here). And if you are here, then write down what your best sports to watch or play are)

There is only one idea comes into my mind as a topic for my writing training - sport. I wanna share my thoughts on sport: the kinds I like or even follow [or maybe practise?], and the kinds I don't. I'm warning you - it will not necessarily be interesting ;) First, I must say that I am not a big sportsman and that I never have been. I mean, I love to watch sports as a pastime, but I don't practise sports myself. Some people categorize people into 2 groups - active people and passive people. According to them I fall into the latter. Not to horse around for too long, I will say that my favourite sport is currently MMA, and to be more precise, UFC. For the last year and a half, I have watched it without skipping a single tournament. I don't know why exactly MMA has become so attractive to me (I have never been that bully who constantly fights and provokes others, quite the opposite, in fact), but for some reason it has happened. Asides from MMA, I like classy old boxing, especially when fighters from my country perform ( Fortunately, there are a bunch of world-class ones such as Usik, Lomachenko, in the past - the Klychko brothers). And football (or as Americans would say "soccer"), of course. Like many other children around the world, I played a lot of football in my youth - and watched it a lot. I will never forget my first the World championship in 2006. I was 8 then, but it was awesome. At the moment, I watch football a bit more rarely, but I never miss the big matches, be it the semifinals of the LOH or matches of the FIFA/UEFA world events. So, I am glad if you are still here).

Hi Andrew! Great job. I tried to change something only if I really had to so as to keep the conversational tone of the text. It was generally very clear and not as boring as you think haha. I remember hearing about the Klychkos! At the minute I'm a big fan of English League One football (I have a cousin playing in the league and I have started to carry out my cousinly duties more diligently since the lockdown). I also like playing football but I have been injured with a fractured ankle for a few months now. I enjoy an occasional boxing or UFC match too!
