A farewell session was held at the OlympaAfrica Sports Development Centre, Lobamba for our athletics youth team that will be competing at the Regional Youth and Junior Championship in Johannesburg, South Africa. They depart today and will compete tomorrow and on Saturday. They are expected to return back into the country on Sunday.
Present was the School Sport Association who sent well wishes to the team and they urged them to uplift the standard of performances at the games. President of the Athletics Association of The Kingdom of Eswatini, Gideon Mthembu advised the team to compete with confidence but most importantly enjoy and express themselves at the games.
SNSRC Business Development Manager, Zama Tsabedze applauded the partnership of AAS and School Sports of focusing on the youth as they are the future of sports in the country. He rallied the departing team to go represent the country with pride, honour and compete for podium places to raise the national flag high in terms of being successful in international sporting events.
Good luck and safe travels to the team!
