Sports

One World Initiative values the important effect that international sport has on building and maintaining cooperative competition between nations of the world. Such competitive events as the Summer and Winter Olympics, International tennis tournaments, golf matches, basketball and hockey games—all provide the opportunity for people from varying countries to join together in the splendor of sport. 

One only has to recall the favorable diplomatic impact that occurred between China and the United States when a Ping-Pong tournament brought the two countries together in an atmosphere of friendly competition and fair play. The lesson is clear: sport is yet another powerful tool for nations of the world to enjoy time together in the atmosphere of spirited competition, building positive relationships and greater understanding of one another.
