DID YOU KNOW ... South Africa have only returned from one Olympic Games without a medal?
In total, the Rio Olympics are the 19th Games that South Africa has attended.
Only once previously - in the inaugrual Games in 1904 in St Louis, USA - has the country failed to return home with a medal.
South Africa's greatest haul from a single Games is 10 medals - at both the 1920 Antwerp Olympics and the 1952 Helsinki Games.
South Africa's best ever Olympics in terms of gold medals won was some 104 years ago in 1912 in Stockholm.
At time of publishing, South Africa have 7 medals in Rio (1 gold, 5 silvers, 1 bronze).
