ON DECEMBER 15 THE NOC OF UKRAINE  WILL FLY ITS FLAG AT HALF-MAST

On December 15 the world will pay its last tribute to a great man, a man of inspiring ideals and outstanding achievements - Nelson Mandela.

To commemorate the legendary personality the National Olympic Committee of Ukraine made a decision to fly its flag at half-mast on the day of funeral at its central office and at the offices of the NOC regional divisions all over Ukraine.

Nelson Mandela repeated many times that " sport can change the world ... it can inspire. It can bring people together ... It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where there was previously only despair... "

Indeed, sport has an extraordinary power to unite people regardless of gender, age, racial, political and religious preferences, to make people happy and inspired.
