Sport fans and commentators have long known the sport to be one of the most popular in the world, but few of them had the opportunity to see it as a full-blown race until now.
That’s exactly what we are.
Dante Carbone and his partner, Andrea Rosato, took part in a three-week road trip to Italy and Argentina in the summer of 2017.
Together, they travelled the world and met more than 30 people from different backgrounds and walks of life.
Dantel Modelleri, a professor at the University of California, Berkeley, and his team spent a month touring the globe to document how different cultures are interacting with one another in their sport.
“We were just in awe of how much this sport is really about diversity, and to see how this is really happening,” Carbone said.
The couple returned home and started thinking about how the sport can be used to improve diversity in the future.
The Carbones are part of a new race of sport-loving Europeans that are creating a space for sport-minded minorities, like themselves, to exist in a sport that is predominantly white.
The sport is being used as a stepping stone for people of different backgrounds to learn about each other, to share ideas and to find community.DANTEL MODELLERI / AFP/Getty ImagesSport fans and pundits have long thought of sports as a white-dominated world dominated by sports and a small percentage of people of color.
But they were wrong.
The sport of soccer, for example, is now seen as a diverse, diverse, and inclusive environment.
In 2018, Carbone received the 2017 John Paul II Award for his work promoting racial diversity in sports.
The award was announced in partnership with the National Center for Sport and Culture.
The 2018 John Paul James Award was established in recognition of John Paul III, a man of color who became the first pontiff to lead the Vatican in the White House.
The award recognizes an individual whose contributions have made a difference in the history of sport, a term used to describe the accomplishments of people who have played, coached, or served in a sports professional role.
The winner of the John Paul J. James Award is announced on February 13.
