How sports can contribute to international relations

(上記TOPIC、英語で意見を論理的に述べる技術とトレーニング第7章より引用)

Essay

 I believe that sports can contribute international relations in two primary ways.
 The first way is through ordinary citizens enjoying sports in everyday life. It is natural for people to get interested in the birthplace of their favorite sport because sport is culture and learning some sport is tantamount to learning a country. For instance, when someone gets interested in Karate, the person also gets interested in Japan naturally. Likewise, when someone gets interested in the baseball, the person also gets interested in the United States naturally. Through this way, sports can make individuals interested in foreign countries, thus contribute to international relations.
 The second way is through sporting events. For example, many countries participate in the FIFA world cup and many people mingle with other people with different nationalities through the soccer. Likewise, the Olympics attracts a lot of athletes and spectators and the media to the host country and many people make cultural exchange with other people from different countries. In this way, sporting events promote international cultural exchange between countries.
 In conclusion, I believe that sports can contribute international relations in the aforementioned two primary ways, which are through ordinary citizens enjoying sports in everyday life, and through sporting events.
