      Sporting Fiesta of Olympic magnitude can glue people of different backgrounds, cultures, religions , languages, races, classes together while the fierce competitions is going on with a lot of joy and happiness. The epitome of this global event is that the losers and the winners co-exist peacefully. Can event like the Olympics be used to resolve crises in this ever boiling world? Your thoughts?

      Global games:olympic,world cup etc are just games.They really do not get to the bottom of things.Yes,they could and stimulates friendship and affilliations.But these cannot be placed on the same pedestal with language,culture and religion.Language,culture and religion are all encopasssing;while games are partial and shortlived.Games make merry go round no doubt.

      A big game fiesta such as the Olympics is a uniter for all nations, both poor and rich, weak and strong. If it can be used to create peace in the whole world, I am for it.

      Yes, they do..humans will always have their differences, down to language,culture,ethnic group,race religion. As a matter of fact, language, culture etc…cause division. I mean using Nigeria as a case study, we are all Nigerians but we are still divided, when push comes to shove, we dusintergrate into little tribes, further divided into ethnic groups, further divided into dialects, further divided into religion and the list goes on and on. Language and culture unite yes, but there are other factors that can easily break that union. Being honest, we know we are partial to people that are more like us,we tend to associate more with them than those who might be different

      However, global games bring people from different parts of the world for a common goal, a common purpose..to win. We forget our differences, our selfish sentiments..and unite to form a team for the purpose of winning. Interacting with people from other countries, building good sportsmanship spirit among ourselves. These games have United people in many ways than language or culture ever did.

      What is the number of people watching the Olympic games compared to the number of Christians or Muslims devotees? If games like Olympic creates unity and love, should it be organized every year? In addition, should it be rotated from one nation to another to spread the Unity and Love to the grass roots? Your opinions?
