AFL is a big sport in Australia (possibly even bigger than cricket, we are told!), and Brett Kirk is a big star in the AFL (Sydney Swans team). In a recent visit to Sri Lanka and India with his family, Sri Lanka Unites had a chance to interact with him and share some of the work we do. He also spoke at an SLU-led seminar on 'Sportsmanship and Non-violence' for rugby and cricket players in two leading state schools in Colombo.
Brett has featured us in an article and a video on his blog - 'Captain Kirk's Odyssey 2011'.
Here's a small extract from his blog:
