Base jumping

Base jumping is the extremal sport. This is mix of adrenaline, jumping, high and a little of danger. Some people jump on this with only one parachute, because the second was opened only in 600 metres above sea level. In this sport they do not exceed this height. Fans of this sport jumped from big rocks in America, buildings, bridges. This is a very dangerous sport and sometimes people will die.

Ice cross is a big race, which takes place on ice. This is a long track with many obstacles, where participants must avoid, example, down stairs. Participants wear helmets, masks, covers. In race there are many accidents, you can be hit by someone. Company Red Bull organises this competition. The first in finishing-line is the winner and gets a cup. This sport is only for brave people.

Crufts
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.
