Colonel Light Gardens, Australia - October 13, 2017 /PressCable/ —

Ludo Aequitas, a not for profit organization – with its key platform the promotion of mental health and equality through sport was created to resolve the exact type of conflict which has now erupted between President Trump and the athletes of its national sports.

The anthem, flag, standing with hand over heart are symbols, gestures, that the United States uses, more than most, as symbols of respect, honour and a commitment to its values as a country and a society. There is also the matter of its constitution and the rights to free speech. The problem arises when different individuals attach different meanings to such symbols, depending on their life experiences and politics.

In recent times, sport has been asked and involved itself with a number of bio-psycho-socio-cultural issues. These include motor neurone disease, breast cancer, concussion encephalopathy, mental health, domestic violence and poverty with the aim of promoting awareness, education and change in attitudes and behaviour.

Now it is race relations and law enforcement.

Whether to kneel or to stand? Link arms or not? What are the values being debated?

Ludo Aequitas has a compromise: through the adoption of its “Ludo Creed” – a set of sporting and human values; and “Do The Ludo” – a sporting behaviour that offers an alternative to either standing or kneeling. A neutral venue for all.

Ludo Creed – is the central cognitive component to the Ludo Aequitas initiative. “We, the players representing our chosen sport, do solemnly swear to uphold the Ludo values of equality, respect, honour and fair play at all times, and denounce vilification based on Race, Colour, Sex, Age, Gender, Religion, Disability or Social Status.”

Do The Ludo – is the central behavioural component of the Ludo Aequitas initiative. It is designed to symbolise strength and defiance, pride and compassion. It can be done individually, with the right arm in the air with a clenched fist, and the left arm folded across the heart (or vice versa). Others can join in by placing their left or right arm around the shoulder of the person next to them, and their other arm again folded across the heart. In this way a “LudoLink” chain can be established either realistically or virtually.

President Trump, sports people and athletes, the fans, the owners, are all invited to “Do The Ludo” as a show of unity and mutual respect for their position.

Hansen says loss to Springboks will improve All Blacks

Sep 19, 2018

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — Head coach Steve Hansen says the All Blacks will learn from Saturday's shock Rugby Championship loss to South Africa and will become a better team because of it. While many hailed the Springboks' victory as positive result for world rugby, denting the All Blacks' aura of invincibility ahead of next year's World Cup, Hansen said the loss could make his team harder to beat in future. South Africa entered the match as underdogs, having lost their last two matches in the Rugby Championships and their last six tests against New Zealand. The 36-34 win was their...

Wallabies' Tui to take rest of season off after fan incident

Sep 19, 2018

GOLD COAST, Australia — Australia coach Michael Cheika says flanker Lukhan Tui has told Wallabies teammates he will take the rest of the season off after a post-match altercation with a fan. Cheika said the incident began after Tui's sister was pushed by the supporter near the tunnel at Cbus Super Stadium on the Gold Coast, immediately following Australia's 23-19 loss to Argentina on Saturday. It capped off an already emotional week for Tui's family — his stepfather died suddenly on Wednesday, and the Wallabies were wearing black armbands in his honor. Tui was still able to take his place...

Argentina ends 35-year losing streak in Australia

Sep 19, 2018

GOLD COAST, Australia — Argentina ended a 35-year losing streak in Australia with a 23-19 win over the Wallabies on Saturday, continuing their strong form under new coach Mario Ledesma. Not since 1983, in the first test meeting between the two nations in Brisbane, had Argentina beaten the Wallabies in Australia. But former Wallabies scrum coach Ledesma helped mastermind the drought-breaking result against his former head coach Michael Cheika. A long-range penalty from Emiliano Boffelli with three minutes to go sealed the victory. Israel Folau missed a chance to win it for the Wallabies after the siren. Folau had an...

Springboks shock All Blacks 36-34 in Rugby Championship

Sep 19, 2018

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — South Africa pulled off one of the biggest upsets in the history of the Rugby Championship on Saturday, holding on under enormous pressure to beat New Zealand 36-34. Given almost no chance of winning after losing their last two championship matches — and 11 of their last 12 tests against the All Blacks, including the last six in succession — the Springboks found new spirit in attack and defense to win in New Zealand for the first time since 2009. South Africa trailed 12-0 after only 16 minutes with the All Blacks entirely dominant. But the...

Friendships set aside for Argentina-Australia rugby match

Sep 19, 2018

GOLD COAST, Australia — If Saturday's Rugby Championship match between Australia and Argentina is a family reunion, Wallabies coach Michael Cheika isn't planning to be too hospitable. Argentina head coach Mario Ledesma was a former forwards coach with the Wallabies, and both Cheika and assistant coach Stephen Larkham consider the rookie Pumas coach a good friend. It's the first time that Ledesma, who was named to the post in early August, will go head-to-head against his former colleagues. There's plenty on the line — the Pumas haven't won in Australia in 35 years. Argentina split a home-and-away series against South...
