Well the 19th version of the Commonwealth Games have come and gone and despite much anxiety and trepidation by some countries ahead of the Games they went as smoothly as could be expected.
I must say I enjoyed being in India with Team South Africa and the team seemed to have a great time. I’m very proud of all those who contributed to our bringing 33 medals back home as well as the entire team who made the trip to India, athletes and administrators.
I’ve also come and gone again. Since I got back to SA I’ve continued the engagement of the legal team on issues related to Athletics South Africa and that process is a continuing one.
At the moment I’m in Acapulco, Mexico at a meeting of all the National Olympic Committees around the world and the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
Some of the themes discussed at this meeting are the autonomy of sport, the fight against doping in sport, marketing in sport, Olympic education, ethics and good governance in sport and generations for peace initiative.
I’m back in South Africa on 27 October where there’ll no doubt be plenty of other matters to keep me busy.
