This time we're living in brought a lot of bad news. But this highly unusual and unprecedented situation that messed with everyone also has a silver lining. We could mention the increased solidarity or the social consensus over common good policies that this event ultimately brought forward, but today we choose to address something more particular that has everything to do with all of us at Move Sports. People are exercising at home now more than ever, making the most of their time by working out and staying fit. And that is a good vibe that came to stay.
Due to the new coronavirus epidemic, the Lisbon Basketball Youth Cup will be postponed to June 26 & 27, 2021. Move Sports, the event organisers, are making this decision in line with the latest recommendations from the Portuguese Government, through its National Health Service (NHS), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Portuguese Basketball Federation, which cancelled all basketball activity in the country in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
While we experience this time of social distancing and confinement, when all the world seems like it's frozen and our lives are left on hold, there's time to think about everything we lived, the good and the bad things. So we got thinking about what we're proud of as a country and all we've conquered in sports. Portugal is a country of great conquests!
Lisbon, the city that leads all the "best travel destination" top charts in the last few years, is an undiscovered pearl, even for people who've already visited it. There is a hidden secret in each corner. If you still don't have plans for when this confinement period ends, keep reading about Lisbon: you'll immediately have plenty.
The International Day of Sport for Development and Peace is an annual celebration of the power of sport to drive social change, community development and to foster peace and understanding. To celebrate this day, even as we fight the COVID-19 epidemic, let's keep physically active, healthy and supportive of our communities: together we will prevail during this ordeal!
It has been abundantly proven that physical exercise is beneficial, both physically and psychologically. The old saying, "a healthy mind in a healthy body", has shown to be accurate by studies. Empirically, you can personally testify to a substantial improvement in your quality of life if you do some exercise.
