SPORT HAS THE
The Power of Sport
It was 1995. It was the Rugby World Cup final, rugby union’s biggest game. And yet it was so much more. It was nation-defining for South Africa, a transcendent moment in the transformation from apartheid to multi-racial democracy. Nelson Mandela donned the famous South Africa Springbok jersey and used the symbolic power of sport to unite black and white South Africans.
“Sport has the power to change the world,” Mandela said in a speech five years after that match. “It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers.”
