The Moment: How Sports Changed The World

In mid-90s South Africa, apartheid was finally over, and the nation was in the midst of a transitional government led by Nelson Mandela. Sport proved to be a tool for unification in a country deeply divided both politically and culturally. Against the odds, South Africa won the 1995 Rugby World Cup. This monumental moment in sports history had an enduring impact on both the nation and the world.
