Take note – story published 7 years ago

A survey by SKDS pollster has revealed Latvians' favorite sports, with cycling being a clear winner as 22% of respondents said they are engaged in this pastime, reported LSM Thursday.

Cycling was followed by swimming (15%), doing sports at the gym, including aerobics and yoga (9%), and skiing, including snowboarding (7%).

Team sports weren't as popular with 6% saying they're engaged in basketball, football and hockey, the same percentage as running.

While 2% are doing active water sports and 2% ride horses.

Even though many do sports, a mere 7% routinely attend sports events. 

Among the hobbies of Latvians are reading, travelling and picking mushrooms and berries. 

The survey was carried out across Latvia and featured 1,005 respondents.
