Welcome to Sport in Africa

So what is you favourite sport?

My favourite is rugby, one of my passions since I was given this funny egg-shaped ball at the age of three. I started playing in a formal team at the age of eight, until the age of twenty-five when work commitments forced me to do something else. Today I am still following the game intensely, supporting the Pretoria based Bulls and of course the twice world-champions, the Springboks. What do I like about the game? It is all about feeling. Feeling the crowd around you, experiencing the presence of your team mates, knowing that you are not alone, handling the aggression of the opposition, overcoming the fear of other people. In the end it is about knowing yourself and knowing that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. It is also about developing strategic and tactical skills, learning to trust your intuition.
