Mozambique sports and hobbies

Despite most South African nations, basketball is a very popular sport in Mozambique. Although internationally recognized since 1978, the Mozambique team has not yet won the remarkable championship. Of course, this did not dampen the enthusiasm for sport and is still widespread.
