Germany and Sports!
Today we are discussing Sports in Germany, what are the most popular things Germans do and watch in terms of Sports? Read on - here are the official Top 10 sports in Germany (BUT BE CAREFUL - the source is not from Germany but should indicate foreigners moving to our country what is the most popular here - can not agree on the ranking honestly!)
1 - Fussball – Soccer or Football
No doubt that Fussball is the most famous sport in Germany - we are world champions
2 - Golf
Golf still is a sport in Germany that only people with a lot of money seem to practice. Not true I say and I doubt it is no.2 popular sport
3 - Ice hockey
Not no. 3 even I personally like it
4 - Basketball
Also never ever No. 4 and I personally do not understand how people can watch that boring Sports lol
5 - Motorsport – especially Formula 1
Agreed! Should be near Top 3
6 - Handball
7 - Tennis
Following Boris Becker and Steffi Graf are as old as me this ranking number might be true!
8 - Skiing
Oh well - broad Sports discipline could be anything - I like most of it from Ski Jumping to Biathlon and Alpine stuff.
9 - Cycling
For sure not Top 10 even everyone has a bike.
10 - Boxing
I find this one of the most boring sports but could be true - Germans tend to make this an event for celebs etc - to me it is really boring - one exception was the recnt Klitschko fight where he lost, reminded me about the times Tyson was boxing, that time it was Sports, nowadays it is a boring event and the sports is more like chess.
