After this, Dr. Joby gave a talk entitled \\'An A-Z of sport in the Low Countries\\', in which he presented and discussed famous sportsmen and women from the Low Countries in 26 sports, one for each letter of the alphabet. The aim of this talk was to demonstrate what an important role sport plays in the life of people in the Netherlands and Belgium, and how successful some of the leading sportsmen and women in these countries are.
