“Play a sport. It will teach you how to win honorably, loose gracefully, respect authority, work with others, manage your time and stay out of trouble.”
Education is all about aiming to know more, do more and be more. While learning so much about the world around us, is no doubt interesting and exciting, but at the same time one must aim to ensure that we as individuals are also becoming the best that we can – mentally, emotionally and physically. Sports is not only the best way to refresh and rejuvenate ourselves, it is an exercise in self-discovery as well. Be it team sports, track events or anything else, every sport we try has a way of bringing forth the true self.
