SPORT IS HIGH
PROFILE IN TODAY'S WORLD
Sport has the power to change the world, the power to
inspire, the power to unite people in a way that little else can do.
It speaks to people in a language they can understand. It is an
instrument for peace, more powerful than governments. It breaks down
racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all kinds of racial
discrimination. The heroes sport creates are examples of this power.
They are valiant not only on the playing field but also in the
community, spreading hope and inspiration to the world.”

CREATE CHARACTER, IT REVEALS IT”
