Any of you compete in or train in any sport?

I'm training for Judo right now. Currently a white belt. I've been powerlifting for quite a while and it's all I've ever done back then. I'm back at it, but not full-throttle.

I suck at ball games in general. And even if I wanted to train for it, exactly where? lol

I find most sports to be kind of boring, so I don't watch them on TV. I like some of the Olympic games, especially the track and field events. But I don't compete in any sports, unless you count chess as a sport. I played some sports in highschool, but that was a long time ago.

Sports on TV are always boring. But highlights in sports caught on YouTube, especially a compilation of them, are a pleasure to watch.

Ball games are still boring even with their highlights though. At least for me. But seeing Olympic lifters break new world records and have the crowd go wild and the commentators go nuts? Ecstasy. Knockout reels in MMA? Ecstasy. And honestly, any Mike Tyson fight is very entertaining.

Friend of mine got me into armwrestling for a while.
DidnĀ“t have enough free time and willpower to train enough, though.

Still an interesting little sport.
Still keep up with his channel, too.

I like watching BattleBots. People only get their egos hurt rather than their bodies. 🦾

I can shoot well with a rifle, bow, wrist rocket, etc., but I can't shoot a basket for shit! 🏀
