Nelson Mandela used sport to unite blacks and whites of South Africa.

Traditionaly rugby was a "white" sport in South Africa, but in 1995 at the Rugby World Cup final, Nelson Mandela was wearing the colors of the Springboks, just like the 65.000 fans at the stadium. It was nation-defining for South Africa. Now the black and white people of South Africa cheer for "Booke" together and enjoy the victory. "Sport has the power to change the world," Mandela said in a speech five years after this battle. "It has the power to inspire, it has the power to unite people in a way that little else does."
