Im­pres­sive Team SA does us proud

The New Age (Gauteng) - - COMMENT -

DE­SPITE not meet­ing their tar­get of achiev­ing fifth po­si­tion on the Com­mon­wealth Games medals ta­ble, Team SA can still hold their heads high fol­low­ing their achieve­ments at the lat­est edi­tion of the Games.

A haul of 13 gold, 11 sil­ver and 13 bronze medals is truly im­pres­sive.

The elec­tri­fy­ing per­for­mances by star ath­letes such as Caster Se­menya, Akani Sim­bine, Chad le Clos, Tat­jana Schoen­maker and Luvo Many­onga will serve as an in­spi­ra­tion to other as­pir­ing cham­pi­ons.

Team SA must be saluted for fly­ing the flag high and are yet an­other in­di­ca­tion that the coun­try can reach even greater heights if Sas­coc gets its act fully to­gether.

As the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games ap­proach, Team SA has an op­por­tu­nity to re­flect on lessons from the Com­mon­wealth Games and fine­tune its strat­egy to bring more glory for the coun­try.

Con­grat­u­la­tions are in or­der for Team SA fol­low­ing their Gold Coast achieve­ments.
