“Sifuna ukulungiselela yonke imincintiswano yamazwe. Sikubone kulinyathelo elihle ukuthi siqale ngokuqala komnyaka ukuqhuba imincintiswano,” kutsho Tagara.
Uthe eminye imincintiswano abayikhangeleleyo ibalisa eyeNational Junior Championships kunye leSenior Inter-Provincial Tournament ngoMbimbitho.

“INaaz ifuna ukuthuthukisa umdlalo wokugijima ngendlela yaphezulu. Sifuna abagijimi bethu bangene esigabeni sama-Olympic Games ngo-2024. Siyalungiselela.
“Inhlanganiso yethu ibe lesizini enhle phakathi komnyaka ka-2022, ngemva kokumiswa yi-Covid-19. Okwakhathesi sigxile ekulungiseleleni ama-Olympics ka-2024,” kutsho uTagara.

Umgcinisihlalo weBab, uWatson Madanyika uthe kumqoka ukuthi ababalisi babe lolwazi olujulileyo ngomdlalo ukuze balolonge ithalenta elisakhulayo ngendlela eqondileyo.

“Ababalisi kumele bathole izithupha zaphezulu, yikho nje siqala ukuthi sifundisane nge-athletics. Sikhangelele ukuthi kuze abantu abanengi, hatshi ababalisi kuphela,” kutsho umgcinisihlalo weBab uWatson Madanyika.

“IBab ikhuthaza ukuthi izikolo zithumele ababalisi bazo kuzifundo zomdlalo. Kuzakuba lamanye amakhosi njalo lapho esizafundisa ngemithetho yomdlalo ehlala itshintsha njalonje.”
