The Economic Impact Of Sports And Its Impact On The World
Sport is an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes
against another or others for entertainment. Nelson Mandela said sport has the power to change the
world, and just like many South Africans who see him as a legend and the great man he is, I believe
this statement. Sport is a very beautiful and influential phase of entertainment. More and more
people in the world follow sports and even more people benefit from it one way or the other.
Sports can impact many aspects in life. From one person, to a whole nation of people and to the
whole world. That is how powerful it is. Through my research I have discovered that there are only
two main ways sports can impact a nation. Sports can have an economic and or a social impact on a
nation and they could either be positive and or negative influences. I will be ... Show more content

Some economic impacts/influences can be bad and some can be good, depending on what we look
at.
Individual, club and National team success leads to people being hopeful and confident about the
future. This optimism encourages people to invest in a lot of sporting merchandise such as soccer
boots or team shirts and it will also encourage them to follow a lot more sports and encourage the
person or team their supporting to do better and they will want to win more. All of this will stimulate
the economy.
Hosting a major sporting event such as a World cup which South Africa did in the year 2010 will
also attract many high–profile tourists who will pump extra money into the economy. Many
Africans used the world cup as an opportunity to make a lot of money. They sold a lot of sporting
merchandise and vuvuzelas where a big hit at the time.
Many people make money because of sports, especially businesses, teams and individual sportsman.
South African businesses can use sports to advertise too. Sports is such a large

Analysis Of The Film Invictus
Many times, when I think of leaders, I tend to look their heart. Being a leader is more than that but,
if a leader doesn't have a good heart than they aren't a good person in my opinion. Therefore, I
believe that the film Invictus does a great job at portraying just that. This film follows two real life
leaders Nelson Mandela and François Pienaar. Both come together and try to unite South Africa.
After Mandela, is jailed for over 27 years his goal is to have peace amongst all the races.
One very important thing that is talked about is the essence of leadership. Nelson, states that people
are inspired to do greatness and so is everyone else by using the work of others. He only expects
more of himself. This is what keeps him going every day and that's how he keeps growing as a
person.
In the film, Mandela showed qualities of a true leader. He did not hold onto resentment even though
he was in jail for almost three decades. In one instance, he wanted races to be united no matter the
color of their skin. When his security team needed more people, he made sure that he had white
security as well. Mandela's original team did not agree with him and therefore they were furious.
The head of security went to speak with Mandela and Mandela told him that change starts with
them. By him having different types of races working for him this showcased that it didn't matter the
color of their skin. Everyone is equal in the end.
Going further into the film, Mandela showed leadership

Invictus By John Carlin: Summary
In Invictus, previously published as Playing the Enemy, John Carlin takes the reader on a journey
through Nelson Mandela's rise from prison to his Presidency of South Africa in the first free election
in 1994. Nelson Mandela's journey first began his journey to racial equality in 1985 during his 23–
year prison sentence. Previously a radical member of the African National Congress Mandela he
served as president of the ANC from 1991 to 1997. During his time in prison, Mandela shifted from
retaliation to compromise by attempting to take down the leaders of apartheid physiologically. This
attitude and approach to the harsh racism in South Africa landed him in the position of the first black
president of South Africa as well as being credited for unifying the country in the famed rugby
world cup in 1995. ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
Mandela eventually made his way to a pampered equivalent to house arrest in the United States
where he had many diplomatic meetings with head apartheid leaders. Particularly in one instance,
Mandela met with the strict prison commander Major van Sittert of Pollsmoor in order to discuss the
conditions and to do this he had t target the weakness of van Sittert, rugby. In their second encounter
Mandela immediately began speaking in van Sittert's native tongue of the Afrikaners after the Major
became immediately displeasured with the English he was using. Furthermore, in order to get the
conditions he wanted, Mandela spend hours talking to the Major about rugby and eventually gained
what he had came for by just forging a friendship with the Major. Ironically, this sudden need for
Mandela to take in rugby led to the unification of a split

  • 7. Nelson Mandela Analysis The relationship that develops between Nelson Mandela and Francois Pienaar in the movie Invictus suggests how crucial of a role they play as leaders to the people of South Africa. Even though, Pienaar is white and Mandela is black, they both work towards uniting a divided nation despite their differences. Regarding Nelson Mandela, he uses his voice and presidential power to find a way in which he can unite the whites and blacks of South Africa. When he discovers that sports, particularly rugby, can be used as a method to unite the people of South Africa to cheer for one team despite how divided its people may be, it signifies how influential and wise of a leader he is to the people of South Africa. This is so inspiring for me because he found an interest that both the whites and blacks of South Africa have in common that will help bridge the gap between them despite their troubled history with each other. Some characteristics of Mandela that indicate how influential of a leader he became for the people of South Africa is because of his transparence, empathy, courtesy, and humility. Mandela served as such a vital figure as a leader in uniting South Africa through his devotion to the rugby team. He understood how influential this team was to the entire nation, and he made every effort to establish a close relationship with the team by frequently meeting and speaking with the players and attending their games. Due to his valiant efforts, he did everything he could to help inspire the team by investing so much time into their success as a leader to the point where they felt that they would have failed the entire nation had they not won the World Cup. Now, this surge of success among the rugby team was ignited by the captain of the team himself, Francois Pienaar. Francois Pienaar developed into a very crucial leader for not only the South African rugby team, but for the people of South Africa. He not only led the rugby team to success on the field, but due to his close relationship with Mandela he was able to inspire and motivate his teammates towards winning the World Cup. For Pienaar, winning the World Cup meant so much more to him than simply having the opportunity to hold up a trophy, but rather to provoke ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

According to the video blacks outnumbered whites 6 to 1, but still did not have the right to vote as the whites had complete control. Both sides were at odds with each other fueled by anger and unjustified resentment. Then when the 1995 rugby World Cup was being held in South Africa the South African team was heavy underdogs.

  • 17. Sports As A Team And The Main Objective Of The Game For rugby however, there are 15players on a team and the main objective of the game is to use the ball to have more points than the other team. In this sport a player can run, kick and pass with the ball but they are not allowed to pass the ball forward. It is a contact sport as the players can tackle the opponent/opposition in order to get the ball. There are three ways to score points in rugby, which is by a try, a conversion and a goal kick. A try is worth five points, a conversion is worth two points, and a goal kick is work three points. Therefore, this sport becomes a high scoring game. Rugby is played on a grass field with lines on it to outline the boundaries. At each end of the fields there are goal posts at either end with an in goal area, where players can score their points by placing the ball over this try line. One team defends and the other is trying to score points, the same as netball. Rugby consists of eight minutes and is split into forty minute half's. At half time there is a ten– minute break then teams swap ends of the field. These are the basic rules, regulations and objectives of this sport rugby. Physical and mental training is required in both sports of Netball and Rugby. Mental attitude and focus are essential elements in performance of these two sports.

  • 25. Mandela In South Africa President Mandela played a big role in stopping South Africans' segregation problem. South Africa several years ago favored white people over the native South Africans. Mandela used rugby and the native children to help unite the country into one. He used the Springboks (the rugby team representing South Africa) to coach younger kids in the slums. Francois, the captain of the team, even said, "I'm glad I don't live here", when talking about how poor the slum conditions were. They targeted younger children because their success with this population appealed to the public. This was very smart of Mandela because this plan ended up working and all the South Africans who jeered the Springboks initially, then cheered them on at the World Cup. The coaches visited the youth living in the slums teaching them rugby. South Africa ended up being the underdogs yet beating two very talented team and ended up winning. Mandela knew he had to keep all his Africaner employees to help stop the massive racism issue. All the government workers thought they were being fired but he gave them the choice to stay or to leave. Many white people hated Mandela, in fact, when he was released from prison someone said, "It's that terrorist Mandela" to one of his rugby players. I envy Mandela's way of maintaining control.

  • 45. Historical Reflection Of The Film 'Invictus' Elizabeth Garcia Perales Professor Williams English 101 10/24/17 Invictus The two segregated fences that separated South Africa were broken down by former South African President Nelson Mandela, who used South Africa's Springboks rugby team as a tool to unite the economically and racially divided country that was suffering by the Apartheid that lasted about 50 years. Yet Nelson Mandela made it his goal to conquer the white supremacy and racial segregation of his beloved country. Mandela's long journey and dedication for South Africa was duplicated by Director Clint Eastwood's Oscar–nominated film, Invictus. In novel Invictus by John Carlin he makes Nelson's Mandela's accomplishment of ending the apartheid more strategic and political unlike the film but kept to Mandela's character. Clint Eastwood showed Mandela as powerful, yet approachable and humble leader who strategically used the popular universal language of sports to unite post–apartheid South Africa. Director Eastwood balanced the historical significance of South Africa's struggles of the time and was yet able to make the film into a classic hollywood sports drama. When Nelson Mandela was elected as South Africa's president he did not take any breaks, his mission and dedication showed in all his actions to remove hate and racial inequality from his country. During Mandela's first few days of his term he noticed that the cabinet members of the Apartheid were quickly leaving as the new cabinet members stepped in and he saw this as an opportunity to remove racial segregation in the workplace. Mandela respectfully asked the Afrikaner members to join his committee to try and give equality throughout post–apartheid South Africa. Many South African's were shocked by Mandela's forgiveness, even the black Africans of his own cabinet, who have to work alongside the same Afrikaners who singlehandedly made the Apartheid. Clint Eastwood included this event in the film because it spotlighted on Mandela's efforts and his commitment to promote progress in South Africa.

The Springboks don't succeed to stop Lomu, the best New Zealand player. Pienaar takes his responsibilities and leads the others to victory. "Come boys. What the heck are we doing? Lomu is killing us. Forwards, we must start scrumming. We must disrupt them at the first phase. Can 't allow Lomu to get the ball in space. He 's freaking killing us.

These Afrikaners had been taught their whole lives that black people did not have the same rights as whites and had grown up in an apartheid society. One day they decided to show their military prowess and marched to the World Trade Center. Unsure of what to do the riot police (mostly Afrikaners) allowed the extremist into the building. No shots were fired, but Viljoen had shown that he had forces ready to act. Mandela was very troubled when he heard the account of that day and immediately requested a meeting with Viljoen. Once again Mandela used his overwhelming presence and quelled the concerns Viljoen and people like him had of the increasing likelihood of an ANC majority in parliament.

In the film Invictus, Nelson Mandela joins forces with the South Africa rugby team in order to unite their nation, which was still racially divided due to apartheid. This inspiring film develops the theme that change is inspired by leaders who exhibit traits such as determination, selflessness, and humility. Some of the characters who demonstrate those admirable traits include Jason, Francois and Nelson Mandela. Throughout the film "Invictus," there were several leaders who demonstrated substantial determination. For instance, Nelson Mandela was determined to unite the nation of South Africa through rugby. South Africa was going to be hosting the Rugby World Cup in one years time, and Mandela knew that winning the world cup would be the perfect way to unite the nation.

The white side was made mostly of the Afrikaans, the white Dutch descendants. Although a smaller percentage of the population, these white people were generally the wealthy and based their acceptance of apartheid on fear, Carlin states. Fear of unemployment, loss of land and sharing the wealth were all factors that contributed to this outlook. The white population generally did not hate Mandela himself but just feared his motives. They questioned if he wanted to become president for redemption and make their fears reality or if Mandela simply wanted equality.

They begin to celebrate with the child and raise him up on their shoulders as if he were a mascot. Ironically, in the beginning of the film, the same child is seen refusing to wear a Springbok jersey. By using the same child in the beginning of the movie and towards the end, this shows the audience how the South Africans have changed their view on the Springboks.

During the World Cup, the final game in the film, the scene occasionally cuts to shots of empty streets and empty houses. This technique shows that everyone is watching the game and that everyone is excited to see the outcome. Another thing Clint Eastwood did to show the black and white people combined is at the end of the movie. He used the world cup to symbolise the nation had been brought together. He did this by making Francois and Chester to both hold the World Cup up above their heads, showing the black and white hand together.

The book entitled Invictus: Nelson Mandela and the Game That Made a Nation was originally titled Playing the Enemy: Nelson Mandela and the Game that Made a Nation was written by John Carlin. The book was published in 2009. The story is most clearly a drama which, for a reader, is more riveting because it tells the story of Nelson Mandela in such a distinct way. Carlin originally reported on the South African transition for the Independent of London and is now world–renowned. He begins the book with a poem entitled Invictus, by William Ernest Benley. While reading, the poem's meaning becomes more apparent and relates well to the book. It is analogous in meaning because it describes the overcoming of adversity and fighting for something that you believe in. The story is told in third person, revolving around Nelson Mandela and the history within South Africa in the 1960's–1990's. The story begins with Mandela running his daily route, at 4:30 in the morning. While in prison, he completed this same running routine to maintain normalcy. This is how Nelson Mandela is first introduced. This is the true–to–form version of Mandela. The first chapter also brings some light to some other people in history who brought the World Cup Final to existence.
