Sample Answer

Sports have always attracted me since childhood. I’ve always been the one to participate in a plethora of events in my school. And, in the ones I couldn’t participate in, I made sure to attend them at any cost. Just last week, I was a part of the annual sporting event in my college.

My college takes up the liability to organize and host such sporting competitions to inspire students to participate in extracurricular activities. The event that I am talking about took place in the playground of my college. The entire premises was decorated and embellished attractively. Gradually, everybody began arriving and taking their seats. The competitions commenced around noon. Post the competitions, everybody waited patiently for the prize distribution ceremony.

My parents and my sister had come along to see me play and cheer me simultaneously. I had taken part in a few matches, such as Cricket and Hockey. Fortunately, I won the man of the match in Cricket. Even in Hockey, my team won the match. Some of my classmates were in the opposing team. However, they could not win against us. Overall, I was satisfied with the performance in both matches. Rest of the matches, I sat with my family and enjoyed every bit of them.

The annual sporting event is one of the best events I participate in every year. I enjoy the competitiveness of this event. And, the fact that juniors and seniors come together to win with sweat and blood is completely mesmerizing. Whether I bring any medal home or not, I will always participate in the event enthusiastically.
