Brazil are widely practiced and popular in the country. Brazilians are heavily
involved in sports. Football is the most popular sport in Brazil. Brazil’s
National football team has won the FIFA World Cup with a record of 5 times in
1958, 1962, 1970, 1994, and 2002. Brazil also hosted the 1950 and 2014 World

sports in Brazil such as Footvolley which was created in the 1970’s. Footvolley
is a mix of football and volleyball. Players must use their head and feet to
get the ball into the net. Sounds complicated which leads me to the next sport,
basketball. Basketball in Brazil is their third most popular sport. Their national
basketball team has won the Basketball World Championship twice which was in
1959 and 1963. Brazil has a very tropical and subtropical nature of climate
which made them unable to traditionally compete in the Winter Olympics.
Brazilians are very good at what they play in their country.    

 

                                 Conclusion

  Brazil seems to be a very energetic place to
be in as I researched. At first I only picked Brazil because it was the first
country to come to my mind but now I see that I made a good decision. I’ve
already knew that Brazil was known for most of their sports, but learning about
Brazil’s top sightseeing places really gave me a buzz. As I was researching I
came across a beautiful place called Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro which is a
beach in Brazil. This beach have very clear blue water and nice tan sand which
seems like a very relaxing place to visit. I hope one day that I would be able
to visit Brazil instead of having to look at it on google.
