Bidding for Glory

Never was there such glory in defeat. Never was there such hope n failure. South Africa invested much more than a total R160m in bidding to host the 2004 Olympic Games in Cape Town and the 2006 soccer World Cup. This was a young, maybe naive democracy asking to stage the two greatest sporting events on the planet, investing its collective hope and self-esteem.
