Study: children spend much longer at PCs and TV than playing sports

Czech children spend three times as long at computers than exercising and playing sports, according to a new study by the Czech Amateur Sporting Association released on Saturday. The survey, conducted among nearly 2,200 elementary and secondary school pupils, also found that children spend twice as long watching TV than exercising. Around 22 percent of the pupils said they played sports during last year’s summer holidays while 21 percent of them said they did not engage in any physical activity at all.
