SA hockey hunts Lon­don spot

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - SPORT -

SOUTH AFRICA meet eight-time Olympic Games gold medal­lists In­dia in the Cham­pi­ons Chal­lenge semi-fi­nal at Rand­burg Hockey Sta­dium to­day.

They are just one win away from ful­fill­ing the re­quire­ments of Sas­coc to as­sure them­selves of a ticket to Lon­don. Not sat­is­fied that win­ning the Africa Olympic Qual­i­fier tour­na­ment was suf­fi­cient proof of the team’s abil­ity to com­pete for a medal in Lon­don, Sas­coc set a fur­ther hur­dle for the team -– reach­ing the fi­nal of Champs Chal­lenge.

Fail­ing that, South Africa have one last chance for Lon­don if they win the fi­nal Olympic qual­i­fier tour­na­ment in Ja­pan in April and May. –Sapa
