Coach Neil Powell who was not able to be in the dugout with the Blitzboks at the Olympics due to Covid-19 isolation, was elated with the team’s perfomance.

“It was amazing just to be out there playing again especially in front of a great crowd. It was great to have two African teams in the final and it’s always a fierce encounter with Kenya.
