Michelle attracts people by playing football

WASHINGTON: US First Lady Michelle Obama usually attracts media due to her style and other unique activities and now she again is being focussed by newsmen.

Michelle Obama showed off some fancy footwork while promoting her "Let''s Move" anti-obesity campaign on a football pitch in Washington.

The US First Lady took to the ground with a group of children at a football clinic to encourage youngsters to exercise daily for at least an hour.

"We''re determined to finally take on one of the most serious threats to their future, and that''s the epidemic of childhood obesity in America today," the Telegraph quoted her as saying at the launch of her Let''s Move campaign last month.

She also said: "Our military leaders report that obesity is now one of the most common disqualifiers for military service.

"Economic experts tell us we are spending outrageous amounts of money treating obesity-related conditions."
