THERE was something for everyone at the Melbourne Multicultural Sports Day 2012. Yi Lei Goh reports.
One of two scholarships being offered by Sports without Borders was awarded to Hani Hosseini, a 26-year-old Iranian who is in his first year of the Master of Project Management programme at the University of Melbourne. The avid Real Madrid supporter plays soccer every week at the university, and came to the MMSD 2012 to indulge in his love for the sport. Hani intends to use the scholarship for professional coaching or to set up a club for fellow soccer enthusiasts.
Despite the lacklustre reception, VIRWC Community Project Officer, Joanna Yau, hopes to have similar events in future. She believes sport is one of the best ways to achieve the event’s goals.
