Training first for Theron

South Africa already have a world first at the World Games in Kaohsiung City, Taiwan… and the Games haven’t even started!
Team SA were taken for lunch by team attache Vincent Lin ahead of Thursday night’s opening ceremony.
The team made use of the super-efficient and spotless underground train system to get to their venue.
And Durban billiards player Jason Theron revealed to much hilarity that, at the ripe old age of 26,┬á this was the first time he had ever taken any form of rail transport.
“It is strange but I’ve just never had to use a train before. I’ve played sport all over the world, from the United States to Dubai and the UK but just always used cabs.”
Was it a novelty? “Well it may be the first time I’ve had train-lag,” he laughed.
Theron, the 2008 African nine-ball champion, will be in action in the second half of the competition.
