What is fascinating about these water competitions is still unknown, possibly because our whole life begins with water. Scientific studies have shown that people who play water sports receive far more satisfaction from training than those who like to sweat in the gym. Water training prevents excessive stress and overwork of the body. This allows you to achieve greater efficiency and training time, and the satisfaction of that training is many times greater.
Here are 2 special water sports at the Olympic Games.
This is one of the most spectacular competitions of the Summer Olympic Games. Refers to technical sports. Athletes often use yachts to go around the water. Therefore, sailing is often called yacht. It originated as believed to be in the Netherlands, the first mention dating to the 16th century. The main objective is to defeat the opposing team. This is the pursuit. Distances consist of small segments marked with floats. The yacht must go around the buoy in a certain order.
The yachts require from athletes not only physical effort, but also considerable mental effort. It is important to be able to anticipate the opponent’s steps, to make decisions in the context of wind and current changes.
Not long ago, it was known that this water sport would be included in the Olympic Games program in Tokyo, which will be held in 2020. This is because, firstly, due to the popularity high of sports in Japan, and secondly, is available the right conditions to organize competitions.
The surfing competition will be included in the program as a test and their fate remains unknown. It is likely that after 2020 they will disappear from the official program. This is due to the fact that not all countries have the opportunity to hold these contests. In addition, skeptics expect the competition to not be too spectacular because the weather and the waves may be too small, which will not allow the athletes to fully show their skills. Surfing refers to extreme sports and is a slide across the board on the surface of the wave. Surfing is usually divided into several categories. The most common are: surfing, windsurfing (it’s different from using a sail to navigate).
