W2W - school sport is essential

SPORT was my saviour at school and an important outlet from the stresses of academia, which was never my forte.

It taught me many things which I would never have learnt in the classroom.

My love for sport continues today and, like many, I relished England’s world cup cricket success and the athleticism and grace of two tennis players at their peak in the Wimbledon finals.

Both were potent reminders of the significance of competition and the desire to win.
