Young Ambassador ready to head for Nanjing

The South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) has handed over the appointment letter, certificate and Roadbook to our Young Ambassador, Reabetswe Mpete, who will be representing South Africa at the 2014 Summer Youth Olympic Games (YOG), Nanjing, China in August.

The primary role of the Young Ambassador (YA) is to encourage the athletes to actively participate in a number of learning experiences that take place parallel to the sports competition programme.

The IOC believes that the role of each YA is central to the success of the YOG and it offers a unique, life-changing experience to all participating athletes.

Along with Team SA Chef de Mission, Vinesh Maharaj, Mpete will be departing for Nanjing this month for a training seminar in preparation for the Youth Olympic Games.
