Weekly roll: where were we gathered?
It goes without saying that sports rings people together and we are all witnesses of that one way or the other. No matter what angle you at it from, be it an unpopular sport, there is always a conjunction of people.
Taken in the broader sense the most supported sporting codes always have their supporters gathered in numbers to cheer on their players. The supporters gather as friends, siblings, couples or associations. IN the smallest form the players that face each other across the different sports are also an example of this.
The past week had us gathered together as Region 5 countries under the African Union Sports Commission (AUSC). 10 countries gathered with various teams across 10 different sporting codes and this too was a realization of the sport truth. Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Lesotho, Namibia and Eswatini were all in one place. We took to the polls to ask where these games were held. Out of 3 options being South Africa, America and Botswana, 100% of our respondents said Botswana which is correct. The 2018 AUSC Region 5 Youth Games were hosted by Botswana in Gaborone.
