See for yourself just how comprehensive this publication is and why so many young people have been encouraged to take up a new sport, better themselves physically and meet and make great new friends.



Choose a Sport

Today's society is witnessing more and more of our younger generation being 'glued' to their screens. Mobile phones, tablets, laptops and pc's are robbing them of a balanced, socially integrated lifestyle where they can develop the range of interactive, interpersonal skills they will need to realise their true potential.

'Choose a Sport' is an award winning book by János Nagy, a Hungarian Olympic and European competition wrestler, that sets out to encourage young people to get away from their computers and mobiles and choose a sport to enjoy instead.   

'Young people need the benefits and values of sport more than ever. They need positive role models like the Olympians who have contributed to this encyclopaedia. This book will help the cause. Guiding young people to sport will improve and enrich their lives, and create future role models for the next generation.'

Mr. Thomas Bach
International Olympic Committee

'In this spirit, I am very pleased to see the birth of 'How to choose a sport' and its translation in multiple languages. Through a remarkable professional career, Mr János Nagy has shown remarkable leadership in providing guidance and inspiration for parents, adults, children and adolescents for their debut in sport. I hope that this publication will motivate many more to take part in sport, to stimulate enriching experiences for individuals, families and wider communities.'

Ms. Irina Bokova
