Sports Diplomacy at the 2022 Beijing Olympics in China by Team Eritrea was the highlight of the year that was 2022.
2022 was an incredible year for our team at Eri-intlsports,org! We share with you our experience as member of the Eritrean national team at the Beijing Olympics. Michael as Chef De’ Mission of TEAM ERITREA represented Eri-intlsports.org as well. We represented ERITREA a nation that millions are proud of. A nation that has been misunderstood. While football/Soccer is the sport that we put a lot of effort into, it is a pleasure that Eri-intlsports.org has been able to analyze all sports through academic theory and in practice.
When Shannon the best African and Black skier in the world based on the 2022 Olympics result called upon Eri-intlsports.org to represent Eritrea and when the Eritrean NOC (National Olympic Committee) along with the Eritrean Cultural and Sports Commission seconded it, we felt the responsibility of representing a nation that is a self-reliant amazing beautiful but one that is resilient and proud. A nation whose martyrs have given up so much for purely trying to be independent.
Through sports and understanding, Eri-intlsports.org and Shannon told the story of Eritrea to the athletes, the administrators, the average people, and many others who loved and stood by our struggle to be a proud nation. Everyone was proud of Eritrea. You can see here from just some of the few pictures that we accomplished a lot. Every Eritrean is its ambassador and for me, I took this opportunity to represent my people and nation, and government in the biggest way!
This was a great year and Eri-intlsports.org is looking forward to many more sports representations for Eritrea in the future. Every picture has a story.
Happy new year! This was my highest moment in 2022.
