How Sport Can Teach us Vital Life Skills

2 October 2014: posted by BigChange

Victoria Pendleton caught my attention at the Conservative party conference this weekend about how sport can teach us so many life skills. Although I’m not a fan of party political conferences but I did enjoy listening to the World & Olympic Champion Victoria Pendleton speak.
Whilst I’ve never won Olympic medals (I wish) sport has played a huge part in my life. It’s enabled me to travel and work abroad. It’s provided me with a career that I love. I’ve met life-long friends through sport and hope to enjoy participating and competing for the rest of my life.
Victoria is so right. Sport teaches us so many life skills.

What has sport taught you recently?
