“I've paid my dues. Time after time. I've done my sentence. But committed no crime. And bad mistakes I've made a few. I've had my share of sand kicked in my face. But I've come through.”
For many South Africans, the echoes of Queens “We Are The Champions” will be one of the lasting memories for 2019 as South Africans celebrated successes across various sporting codes including the netball courts, the gymnastic arena and of course being the Rugby World Champions.
To succeed at a global level like the Springboks or the South African netball team or even young Caitlin Rooskrantz – who made history being the first South African to win a gold medal in an international gymnastics event – requires more than just natural skill.
“She is a fighter and has come back from quite a few injuries to achieve great success in her career thus far,” Rooskrantz’s coach told IOL.
“Rassie Erasmus – as well as the SA Rugby officials who handed him a six-year contract and the room to implement his master plan – deserve credit for the foundations that have been laid over the past two seasons,” wrote top rugby writer John Cardinelli.
Similarly, for those who have followed the rise of Netball in South Africa, you will know that there has been an investment in talent and putting the best team in place to ensure that they not only excel in Africa but can take on the best in the world.
What’s important about all three of these stories is that each team or individual – irrespective of past challenges – adopted a plan, surrounded themselves with a team and grew into world champions.
