Title: Wrestling Diplomacy
Post by: a guest on November 08, 2013, 01:29:47 PM
"As we can see in the Olympics or World Cup games, sports could boost a sense of national unity under the one national flag. National identity is important to build an unified nation. I hope my challenge as a foreign wrestler will help Sudanese people to recognize their own identify, and peruse peace in Sudan.”                 - Yasuhiro Murotatsu

As you can see, the first takedown wins the match
