Culture & Press news – Embassy 22– January 2010

Culture & Sport...

Fun and games

If sport is war by other means, then expect plenty of combat this year. The first battle for gold medals starts in February with the Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

South Africa will host the first African Football World Cup in June and it promises to be a very exuberant occasion. The streets of multicultural London will be aflutter with the flags of every participating nation.

Asia is not left out of the action with both the Commonwealth Games in Delhi in October and the Asian Games in Guangzhou in November.

Other cities in the spotlight will be Pecs in Hungary, Ruhr in Germany and Istanbul in Turkey – Europe's capitals of culture this year.

Expect an array of exhibitions and concerts from these embassies.
