National Olympic Committee
of South Africa
The Olympic Games is ultimately the toughest sports environment in the world.
Many of the world’s top stars concentrate only on achieving their best at these Games.
Our target was to improve on our
performance in Sydney of four years
ago. This we did.
Sydney – 5 Medals
Athens – 6 Medals
Our Olympic Team consists
largely of individual athletes’ performances.
In our short history success
has come from individual athletes only.
Athens OPEX program from 2001 to 2004
Provided support for
Individual monthly grant
Scientific and medical testing
Olympic career opportunities program
Spent R43m in the 4year period
Did better than in Sydney.
Largest and toughest sports event in
202 countries competed.
Disappointments must be expected.
Sadly, only the medal table is recorded.
Other successes are not.
