ANCYL congratulates Sports Heroes and Heroines
5 November 2012
The African National Congress Youth League congratulates all the athletes who received awards at the 2012 South African Sports Awards. The awards are a recognition and celebration of not only their efforts and tenacity, but of all those who would have worked with them to bring about the excellence celebrated. The ANC Youth League is aware of the time and effort that would have gone into them honing their crafts and we indeed concur with Minister Mbalula that they are the pride of the nation.
We further commend Sports and Recreation South Africa for supporting and encouraging excellence amongst South Africa`s youth. We are especially overjoyed at the prospect of a professional National Netball League and the National School Championships. We trust the Department`s determination to consolidate social cohesion and build a winning nation through sport will continue to grow and develop, and we have no doubt that work together with the youth of South Africa, together we will forge an unbeatable alliance.
Issued by the ANC Youth League
