In this article we will talk about Crufts.

What is Crufts?
Crufts is international dog exhibition.The event is organised  by the The Kennel Club. It is held over four days  in early March at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham, England. It is the largest show of its kind in the world, as declared by Guinness World Records.

Crufts was named after its founder, Charles Cruft, who worked as general manager for a dog biscuit manufacturer.
The first show named "Crufts"—"Cruft's Greatest Dog Show"—was held at the Royal Agricultural Hall, Islington.

Dogs compete in hierarchical fashion. Dogs begin by competing against others of the same breed, split by gender, age and previous class wins. These classes include Veteran, Special Puppy, Special Junior, Yearling, Post Graduate, Mid Limit, Limit, and Open. Each is awarded once for dogs and once for bitches. The dog and bitch class winners then compete again for the Dog and Bitch Challenge Certificate . The two CC winners then go head-to-head to determine the Best of Breed.

After the best of each breed has been chosen, they then compete against the others in their Group (in the UK, there are seven Groups: Toys, Gundogs, Utility, Hounds, Working, Pastoral, and Terriers) to find the Best in Group. The seven Group winners then compete to find the Best in Show and Reserve Best in Show.

Best in Show winners receive silver Keddall Memorial Trophy, and a cash prize of £100.In 2013 won dog of breed Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen,Jilly.Crufts is viewed by 160,000 visitors.

Dangerous sports


People have diffrent hobbies.Some people collect stamps but some people like dangerous sports.This people must be brave,clever and adventorous.We want to show you 3 exlamples of extreme sports.

Snowboarding
This was an extreme sport,but now everyone is doing it even parents! 15% of all snowboarders are over 40 and there are 12 milion snowboarders all over the world.In many ski resorts,there are more snowboarders than skiers.It's no easy but no so dangerous sport.So when somebody can it very  he don't must afraid.In a beginning important is only have a teacher.

Speed skiing
This is very dangerous sport,because speed skiers must never ride slowly.They go to the tops of mountains and find  a very steep vertical slope (ex.frozen waterfall) and they ski down for about 3 km at speed of 250km/h.They have to wear thin skis,special helmet and a rubber suit.Why the rubber suit?Skiers go fast and sometimes break an arm or a leg ,but speed skiers go even faster and it they fall,they bodies can burn,when they rub along the snow,rocks and ice!


Sky surfing
Sky surfers is combination of surfing,flying,speed and heights.They have to jump out of plane and tricks on a surf board.Another person jump with him and films them on video.This is the only sport where judges are not with the poeople who doing the sport.They watch the videos and decide which sky surfer was the best.
