A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of ‘Adventure Sports.’
Wikipedia defines the term as follows: “Action sports, adventure sports or extreme sports are activities perceived as involving a high degree of risk. These activities often involve speed, height, a high level of physical exertion and highly specialized gear. Extreme tourism overlaps with extreme sport.”
Adventure sports are thus sports that people take part in for the thrill or the adrenaline rush that they get momentarily by indulging in the prospect of taking risks.
However, the risks they take again, are extremely dangerous and can result in dire consequences including broken bones and limbs, head trauma, spine injuries that might leave them permanently paralysed, or even death.
People, however, do take precautions and still indulge in adventure sports regardless! Popular adventure sports include trekking, snow-skiing, mountain biking, zipline, paragliding, parasailing, sky diving/parachuting, hot air ballooning, and surfing.
