Today, soccer is the most popular sport in Latin America and Colombia is no exception. Colombia's National Team participated in three World Cup championships in a row with great players like Carlos Valderrama and Faustino Asprilla who are known world-wide.

Colombian cyclists are known for being some of the best mountain-climbers in the sport. (With the Andes Mountains dividing into three ranges in the South of the country, it's no wonder! Colombia is nothing but mountains!) Colombian cyclists are known for their strength in world cycling events like the Tour de France, The Vuelta de Spain, and the Giro of Italy. Great cyclists like Lucho Herrera and Fabio Parra rode with the Colombian Coffee Team. In the 1980s, the sport suffered a low, but in the last several years, Colombian cyclists are making news in world events like Santiago Botero and Victor Hugo Pena (who rides with Lance Armstrong's team.) Colombia's bicycle tour "the Vuelta de Colombia" and the classic RCN Tour are world-known competitions as well.

In the last few years Colombians have become huge car racing fans thanks to Juan Pablos Montoya who ran for three years in the English Formula One Team Williams and in 2005 changed to McLaren.

Like many nations that once lived under Spanish rule, Bull Fighting is a sport many Colombians follow. Some of the best bullfighters, in fact, have come from Bogota's bullfighting school. Cesar Rincon is famous world-wide and at one time was considered the best matador in the world. Ole!

 

Baseball is a big sport in the Atlantic Coast. Some great Colombian baseball players now play in the US Big Leagues, including Edgar Renteria and Orlando Cabrera to name a couple.

Sports like coleo or tejo are typical sports in the country. Coleo is practiced in the Colombian plains and is similar to rodeos in the United States. Tejo is similar to horseshoes.
