Everyone, young and old seems to have a sport that they practise. When I had to have a medical for a job, I was asked if I practised any sport. I said that I rode my bike! When I repeated the conversation at home it received an, ‘Oh, mother!’ from our then, teenage daughter. Sports are taken very seriously. You must wear the right gear and try to be the best at it. Playing sport for the fun of it doesn’t seem to be in the French psyche.
