Globetrotters
In March this year I got to meet the incredibly talented and even more humble Slick Willie Shaw and Sweet J Ekworomadu of the Harlem Globetrotters. They were on a tour of South Africa to do some public relations with the announcement that they would be returning to play in our […]

Springboks (4)
It doesn’t happen very often that I get the level of excitement for a video about a World Cup as I am about the 2015 Springbok Rugby World Cup campaign, “Home Ground Advantage”. In a powerful video that reminds us of the uniting ability of sport so often attached with […]

It is now just nine days away from the 2015 Unogwaja Challenge, a challenge that re-traces the incredible journey of Phil Masterton-Smith in 1933. Phil was the defending down-run champion having won the Comrades Marathon in 1931, in the most riveting finish in the history of the race. He could […]

Nelson Mandela said that sport has the ability to unite a nation and right now we are a nation that needs uniting.
