Sports Diplomacy

First there was ping pong in China. Then came wrestling in Iran. Now sports diplomacy is leading the way in thawing another cold relationship: the Koreas. According to the Beeb, North and South Korea are taking the first step toward reunification on the sports field. Who knows? Maybe they can soon end that pesky war going on between them.

Postscript: Did you know that the U.S. State Department has an Office of Sports Diplomacy?
