SA hockey hunts London spot
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
