Sport! Almost no other topic can catch the attention of hundreds of millions of people around the world and unite them to share passion for a favourite athlete, team or club. The significance of sport for society is unquestionable. At its best, sport represents values, such as fairness, performance, teamwork and responsibility. Sport breaks down barriers of class, social status, mentality, culture, politics, sexual orientation, national origin, religion and physical challenges. Sport provides role models, idols and heroes, for future generations to look up to. The attributes and attitudes of sport stars can have lasting effects on the values of our society and especially on young people.
