Teenage professional sports-persons : fame and sacrifices
In this website, we will talk about the pros and cons of being a teenage professional swimmer. Swimming is a good way to exercise and is really good to our health. But will training too much cause bad effects to our health? Professionals need to spend a lot of time in training, but can the younger ones who are still at school keep up with their schoolwork? So in this project, we will include an interview with Aisling Haughhey- a teenage professional swimmer to understand more deeply about this situation.We chose this topic because some of our fellow schoolmates are swimmers who represent the school. We find that most of them can keep up their school work but some couldn't. We want to have a deeper understanding in this problem so we chose this topic. A professional swimmer can achieve a lot of prizes and glory when they win in competitions, but when they lose, they may feel disappointed and frustrated. Maybe in just one competition, participating in 5 or more minutes, they have spent a lot of time in training. It is very tiring for such age. On the other hand, they need to keep up with their school work and acadamic results. It would be a hard work for the teenages. Over excersice will make people tiring, without enough rest, it's hard to concentrate. Sometimes they need to participate in trainings or competitons, causing them need to skips lessons at school, making them can't follow up in school. It 's really hard to have a balance in both school and swimming.
