SASCOC extend their condolences to South African Gymnastics Federation
- Updated: April 10, 2015
SASCOC extends our heartfelt condolences to the South African Gymnastics Federation on the tragic passing away of gymnast Lindokuhle Sithole who died in a car crash on Tuesday 7 April 2015.
We express our sincere sympathies to both the gymnastics family and Lindokuhle’s family and friends on the unexpected loss.
Our thoughts are also with senior gymnast and driver, Michael Robbertze who sustained a head injury and two broken arms, Glasgow Commonwealth Gymnast Sipheshile Biyase who sustained leg injuries, and yet another gymnast, Christopher Campos who suffered minor cuts.
We are deeply saddened by this incident. SASCOC shares your sorrows and is thinking of you all and wishing for a speedy recovery and may your families and members stay strong during this difficult time.
We remember 22-year-old Lindokuhle from the Pinetown Gymnastics Club, KZN for his talent and achievements which include; winning the junior title (13-15 years) at the Rope Skipping World Youth Tournament held in Cape Town in 2008 and remaining KZN Rope Skipping Champion until 2010, his qualification for the 2010 World Championships in the UK as well as representing KZN and South Africa at the 2011 World Gymnaestrada (an international gymnastics non-competitive festival) held in Lausanne, Switzerland.
May the soul of Lindokuhle rest in peace and we also wish speedy recoveries to Michael, Sipheshile and Christopher.
