Some people think that dangerous sports should be banned, but others think the people should have freedom to choose sports activities. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.
Nowadays, extreme sports are increasing in popularity around the world, with extreme sports competitions offering thrill and adventure to all participants involved. Though some people are in favor of outlawing these dangerous sports, I think that everyone should have the freedom to participate in extreme sports.
On one hand, it is true that extreme sports such as water rafting, car racing, kickboxing, and sky diving are inherently risky. People who are inexperienced might be reckless and unprepared, which would increase the likelihood of a life-threatening injury. Even a skilled and highly experienced sports person could make a minor mistake and end up getting severely injured or losing their lives. For example, the famous snowboarder Caleb Moore attempted a backflip on his snowmobile during a competition, but he ended up in a violent crash, eventually passing away from complications resulting from his injury. Accidents like these are not only devastating to the competitors, but also to their friends, families, and dedicated fans.
Nevertheless, even though extreme sports are risky, people should still have the freedom to participate in them as they wish. Extreme sports competitors generally relish the challenge, thrill, and adrenaline rush inherent in these sports activities, and many are well-aware and accepting of the risks involved. What’s more, extreme sports often bring glorious fame and prestige to the competitors and even recognition to their country. Since extreme sports are significantly more challenging and require more advanced technique than other sports, competitors often feel a sense of pride in their accomplishments. Rather than outright banning extreme sports, governments should ensure that the sports facilities meet the required legal standards of safety and that all competitors take the necessary precautions.
In conclusion, I believe that—despite the risks—people should have the freedom to participate in extreme sports because it provides immense excitement and adventure to many.

这是一篇社会类话题的讨论类大作文，从题目中的提问部分可看出，要求各位考生针对双方的观点都进行论述。因此，在作文结构部分，我们需要使用双边类的写作结构。本篇范文中，作者首先通过改写题目的方式来进行主题的呈现，并且，在开头段就要表达自己的观点。在主体段部分作者通过两个段落来完成题目的讨论，在第一个主体段中，作者首先讨论了极限运动的弊端。首先第一点极限运动存在一定的风险，有时甚至会危及生命，并举例说明。在第二个主体段，作者对于极限运动的好处进行了论述，可以看出作者在这一段使用了更多的文笔，因为作者更加认同这一方的观点。首先在这一段的开头，作者写出了中心句：尽管极限运动有一定的风险，但是人们还是应该有自由去进行这些运动。作者通过两个论点对这一中心句进行了解释说明，作者通过使用恰当的连接词和短语将论点与论点之间进行连接，比如what‘s more,for example等，这样使得论点之间的连接更加流畅，逻辑更加清晰。最后结尾段，作者简单的重申了自己的观点。这篇文章中使用的主体段结构以及论证手法在惠尚学2019雅思写作教材第七课中有详细的讲解，如果大家想要了解更多关于写作的知识，欢迎大家来惠尚学上课。
