12 Apr. 2016 – For third consecutive year, One Lebanon Mini football tournament has been organized by the Soprano Tania KAIS in College Notre Dame de Jamhour, for the unique goal of unity in the World Sports Day!
One Lebanon team completed against a team formed by representatives from different embassies in Lebanon. The Lebanese team was formed by Michel Fadel, Tony About Jaoude, Marc Hatem, Nizar Francis, Walid Dimiaty, Fouad Zmokhol, Ahmad Modrak, Nadim Moujaes.
