Some of my friends ask why on earth I watch sport, thinking it’s boring and pointless. I nearly always watch big events, like Olympics, Six Nations Rugby, World and European Football cups, Wimbledon, motorsport series. I thought it was the competition- who would win, who would lose; the adrenalin rush of exciting sports etc.
But I just realised. It’s not that. It’s the human stories of courage, kindness, humour, unity that I like. So here are some pictures and videos to illustrate what I mean.
These are all from the Sochi Winter Olympics. I am not endorsing Russia’s stance on homosexuality, I am endorsing the good side of sport and human nature.
Some are moving, some are funny, some are bizarre. Please click on the links to see the videos:
And of course, the best of the lot:
Not earth shattering but stories of little human acts which affect others in a positive way.
