“Sport Has the Power to Change the World’: Nelson Mandela

Posted on Updated on

Can a man throwing a spear stop a war? Can a woman reading a poem stop a war? Can sworn enemies become friends just for two weeks every four years? The answer is ‘Yes, Yes and Yes!’ And it’s been going on for some time ….in fact over a thousand years.

Enjoy the speech of Paul Smith about Sportsmanship.

What do you think? Can sport change the world?

    Sport breaks down barriers, reduces stress and tension, provides a level playing field for those of all ages, races and creeds…..

    A shared passion brings people together…and only sport does that so effectively. And Mr Mandela knows a thing or two about changing the world.
