When it comes to bringing the nations of the world together for a common goal in the spirit of respect and friendly competition, it seems that athletes get all the glory. The Olympics and World Cup tournament are models of sportsmanship and international camaraderie as the world proudly watches its gifted athletes represent their countries in a show of physical prowess and strength.
