Over the last week or so, we’ve been blessed to see some terrific sport played around the world. It reinforces what a tremendous force for good sport can be. As you know, I’m passionate about good, honest competition that is played well, competed fiercely and won or lost honourably and some of it this week has even revolved around Australian success, which for me, makes it all the sweeter.
Goodbye and good riddance, thanks for nothing Mr. Rogge. Don’t let the door hit you in the arse on your way out!
I want to know what Jacques Rogge is supposed to have done for world sport while he was President of the International Olympic Committee. The IOC is the global custodian of Sport and as such we expect its leaders to do just that: lead.
I’m pleased to be writing these notes after visiting sunny Cape Town where I was invited to speak at an international conference on drug-free sport and, as most of you will know by now, it’s a subject that’s very close to my heart.
