Learn: Visit the website for the 2016 Rio Olympics. Click on the name of the one of the sports that is listed on the main page. If possible, choose one that you have never heard of before and read about it. After reading about the sport, post a short description of it on your blog. The post must include:
- The name of the sport
- The aim of the sport
- Two rules for the sport
1. Name of the Sport: Basketball
2. The Aim of the Sport: The Aim of Basketball is to shoot the ball into the opposite hoop and try to score more points than the opposition. The team with the most points at the end of 4 quarters is the winner and if it's a tie at the end of regulation you will play at least 6 mins of overtime.
3. Two Rules for the Sport: 1. Once you have stopped dribbling the ball you can only take 2 steps to enable yourself to score. 2. When you have already held the ball in 2 hands and you are standing you can't dribble the ball again so you can only use your pivot foot to move away or pass the ball to your team mate (your pivot foot is the foot you keep still while you are moving the other one around).
Why I chose Basketball?
