JR congratulates all sports journalists
On July 2, we honor social communications professionals dedicated to informing the world of sports.
The creation of this event in 1995 was initiated by International Sports Press Association (AIPS)during the World Congress in Quebec. The date chosen was 2 June to commemorate the creation of said association.
It’s not just about news or sporting events. A sports journalist contributes to the popularization of sports as a topic of a general educational and cognitive nature, the popularization of sports habits that affect people’s health.
