The 7s Boks with Ikeys Paul Delport, Kyle Brown an Mpho Mbiyozo getting behind olympic-rugby.org at the London Sevens last weekend.
A yes or no of the International Olympic Comittee about Rugby’s Olympic inclusion is the single biggest challenge our sport is facing this year.
The ‘Yes’ will open the sport to the world and we have an opportunity to give the players and also the Ikeys of tomorrow a chance to compete at the highest level – the Olympic Games!
Sign the petition on http://www.olympic-rugby.org a brand new initiative that has gone live only last week and already has over 7000 signatures from over 100 countries!
Rugby is competing with several other sports, like Karate, Golf, Squash and possibly even underwater Chess, Tug of War or something similarly exotic. In 2005 the International Rugby Board failed to get rugby in the Olympic Games 2012 in London. The olympic-rugby.org petition aims to swing the vote this time and generate as much publicity and momentum for the cause as possible, before the decision gets made in October 2009. Rugby is a team sport, so we must team up, scrum down and make it happen. Crouch, touch and pause – Engage!
UCTRFC players and fans have started to come to the party!
