Sports, The Great Unifier?

The Youth and Sports Ministry has announced that annual sports competitions, which previously only included government schools, will now be open to students from private, international, and religious schools as well. The decision was made to allow young athletes to compete against a wider pool of peers, and has been lauded as a positive move towards national unity. We talk about how this move could build bridges between students of different backgrounds, and why sports provides a unique way to bring people together.
