It is easy to understand sports as an apolitical vacuum where the purpose of the activity is
for team A to outperform team B; but nothing is truly is truly apolitical. In this paper I show that
sports is not an apolitical vacuum, but rather it is a powerful tool that can be utilized to bridge
political divides in instances where traditional diplomacy may fail to do so.
