Beijing Foreign Studies University Press | The Sanctuary of Sport: A Testimony of Olympism in Action
The Senior High School textbook unit below was produced by the Foreign Language Teaching and Research Press (FLTRP), the publishing arm of Beijing Foreign Studies University – the largest university press in China and New Standard English.
Based on The Sanctuary of Sport: A Testimony of Olympism in Action I wrote on the HuffPost, the Foreign Language Teaching and Research Press (FLTRP) referenced content from this article to create a unit in the Readaholic Eclectic, a complement to the Senior High School textbook and K-12 textbook series that has sold more than all the Harry Potter books combined.
Jamal Atkins is featured in both the textbook and article. A Baltimore native and proud graduate of St. Frances Academy, Jamal operates the Basketball Academy of Excellence in Zambia and is an accomplished educator that uses basketball to empower students, families and communities. Follow him and the Basketball Academy of Excellence on Facebook.
