Why is sport important to you? I mainly take part in team sports and this has allowed me to meet a range of people with similar interests and taught me invaluable skills such as working as part of a team in order to achieve a common goal, self discipline and leadership. In addition, I find playing sport allows me to relax and achieve a balanced lifestyle.
