Need an athletic/military quote...

Topic: Need an athletic/military quote...

I'm looking to find a quote (preferably from a significant individual) that shows a link between experience gained through athletics and military leadership. It can also be something relating sports to statecraft, politics and/or cultural understanding in a positive way. A quote about sports bringing nations of all backgrounds together could also work well. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Good luck

Winning means winning.
Winning does not mean winning over others.
