UN Special Adviser on Sport for Development and Peace visits Fight for Peace
The Special Adviser from the United Nations Office on Sport for Development and Peace, Wilfried Lemke, visited Fight for Peace in Rio de Janeiro. Wilfried Lemke got to know Fight for Peace in 2011, when he visited the Academy for the first time. This week, he attended a Taekwondo presentation and met with the Youth Council.
They talked to the coach Manoelzinho and saw young athletes of various belts presenting Poomse (an individual training method of attack and defense – each belt colour has its own poomse).
The Special Adviser on Sport for Development and Peace then spoke with representatives from the Youth Council. After everyone was introduced, he talked about his return to Fight for Peace and how Fight for Peace members should be proud to be part of the organisation.more here
