- outline a problem that can arise with doing extreme sports and suggest a way of solving it;
- conclude by giving your opinion on the role of extreme sports in the life of young people.
Recent studies show that more and more people start doing extreme sports. To learn more about it, I have found some information on why young humans in Zetland do extreme sports. As a part of my project, I have analyzed these data and come across some interesting findings.
According to the data I have found in the table, young generation has a wide-range opinion when it comes to extreme sports. The majority of respondents like getting some adrenalin (49%) whereas exploring the limits is the least popular reason (9%). Increasing self-confidence is also a quite popular reason as well as fighting fears and stress, making up 13% and 12% of the respondents respectively.
It is noticeable that there is a substantial difference between the most and the least popular explanations. Getting some adrenalin is almost at 5 times more popular than exploring the limits. The difference between the percentage of people who do extreme sports for the sake of following modern trends and increasing self-confidence is also considerable. It is less than 5% which is surprising because both of these reasons are not favoured by youngsters in Zetland.
Although nowadays doing extreme sports is becoming very popular. it still can lead to some problems. For example, defferent kinds of extreme sport are very dangerous and people can get serious injuries doing it. The best solution is to find a place which can provide insurance and the real safety for fans of extreme to prevent accidents.
In conclusion, I firmly believe that despite some problems associated with extreme sports. it obviously plays a big role in youngsters’ lives because it helps to reduce negative emotions and then feel much better.
