I am not able to play contact sports anymore, due to multiple eye surgeries, so ever since my teenage years I have stayed away from basketball and football in general. I have played a little bit tennis for a couple years in high school but it was never my forte. In college I started enjoying both billiards and ping pong. Finally if one would include chess as a sport I would say my favorite sport is chess, otherwise it is billiards and ping pong.

Here in the Philippines chess is a sport, every time their are sport competitions between schools, chess is included, and I must admit its very hard to keep up with the chess players, I have seen one of their matches and I was dumbfounded, I didn't know what they are doing with a clock, its just so fast to keep up with their moves. I have a new found appreciation for all chess players.kudos.

Thank you for kudos and the respect for the sport of chess. People have been trying to get the Olympics to recognize the sport of chess but I am not sure if it will ever become an event. I actually met a couple Filipino people here on Mylot who play chess. I hope I get to play with them one day. =)

I love playing table tennis.I am not sure why is that but I started doing it since I was 12 and I still go to the gym when I have some free time and want to relax in some way.
