    Bring medals. I really like zambia, a nonracial country. Had this been in our neigbhours down south, there would have been an inquiry as to why there few blacks in the team.

      P.M what are trying to say?

      • P.M

        What Iam saying is that sport must be based on merit and not race. In South Africa everything is based on race. They myst have so many people of colour in Rugby, Cricket and so on. In USA fir instance, how many white are in the basketball team, how many whites are in short distance running like 100m sprint or 200m? How many blacks are in swimming teams? I guess each race has a God given talent and opportunity plays a critical role in enhancing that talent. At the end of the day different races bring in different talents to make the country great. Dont force sport onto people without talent and interest in that particular sport.

    there going to loss anyway Africa sucks at sports we don’t have adequate personnel to equip our athletes with the right skill to compete at world level I mean a coach, paramedics, sports scientist, nutritionist, gym specialists, tactics specialist and many others. Maybe they might win but don’t put your hopes up remember U20
