Team South Africa did the country proud during the Commonwealth Games held in New Delhi, India, SA High Commissioner to India, Harris Majeke, said.

“Today I am elated to boldly state that Team South Africa did the rainbow nation proud,” Majeke said in a statement.

“Our dedicated, passionate, hard-working and talented team represented South Africa with aplomb, scooping a total of 12 gold medals, 11 silver medals, and 10 bronze medals.”

Majeke said Team South Africa had exceeded their expectations.

“They competed with integrity, fairness, dedication and, more importantly, revealed the insightful truth in President Jacob Zuma’s constant pronouncement that South Africa is a winning nation.”

South Africa was proud to be an active member of the Commonwealth and a zealous participant in all its organs and programmes, Majeke said.

The games ended yesterday with South Africa in the fifth position on the medals table.
