Minister - speech - Gala Function for all South African athletes

This function, therefore, is a token of appreciation and little gesture by the Ministry of Sport and Recreation South Africa, on behalf of the government of the Republic, to the sons and daughters of the soil who fearlessly faced the foreign threats and became victorious. This function is unique and it has been deliberately arranged in the hope that SRSA can begin a process of ensuring that South Africa moves swiftly in recognition of its own talent and excellence at all levels of participation; and move sport and recreation to higher trajectory and ensure that we raise our flags wherever we compete. This platform presents us with a golden opportunity to know each other; to motivate one another; and build from that foundation of a united, non-racial and non-sexist sporting nation and people.
