Government congratulates team South Africa for flying the flag high at the Commonwealth Games. South Africa has now collected nine gold medals along with six silver and six bronze medals in their overall tally of 21 medals.

Government is elated at our star athlete, Caster Semenya’s smashing win in which she broke the world record in the 1500m race and finished at time of 4:00.71. Semenya also broke legendary athlete Zola Budd's 34-year-old South African record set in 1984.

Acting GCIS Director-General, Phumla Williams, said: “We are proud of all our participants at the Commonwealth games.  Their success is a result of hard work, determination and perseverance.  Sports is one of the social fabric that binds us together as South Africans and may the success of the South African team inspire aspiring young sports athletes.”
