Australia's Sport Links
Transcript of Australia's Sport Links
Sport is considered by some to be a national 'religion' or 'obsession' with its own opportunities for attracting business in Australia with sporting countries. In 1964, Donald Horne suggested that Australia's success at competitive international sport was even considered an important part of its foreign policy.
Australia is a proud and successful sporting nation. Sport is a big part of Australia's lifestyle and national identity. The increase in the global importance of sport has meant that Australia had made links with other nations in staging international sporting events.
