Ramaphosa Applauds South Africa's Special Olympics Team for Outstanding Achievements

President Cyril Ramaphosa

President Cyril Ramaphosa has praised South Africa’s national team for their exceptional performance at the recent Special Olympics World Games in Germany. The team competed against 7,000 athletes from over 180 countries and brought home an impressive medal haul of 22 gold, 20 silver, and seven bronze medals.

The Special Olympics is an international movement that aims to create a more inclusive and welcoming world, where people of all abilities and disabilities can participate. President Ramaphosa emphasized the importance of collaboration between the government and civil society, represented by Special Olympics South Africa, in ensuring that no one is left behind.

South Africa is proud to be one of the first countries to support the Special Olympics Global Leadership Coalition for Inclusion, demonstrating the nation’s commitment to incorporating individuals with intellectual disabilities into all aspects of society. The President expressed his delight in hosting the national team at the Union Buildings to celebrate their remarkable achievements.

According to President Ramaphosa, Team South Africa’s success not only brings honor to the nation but also breaks down barriers and champions social inclusion and the advancement of human rights. He described the team as inspiring heroes, both in sports and in everyday life. The President expressed his hope that the nation’s dedication to inclusion shines as brightly as the achievements of the Special Olympics Team.

The team is led by Dr. Mathews Phosa, the Chairperson of Special Olympics South Africa, who was recently recognized at the 19th Special Olympics Africa Leadership Conference in Addis Ababa. President Ramaphosa commended Dr. Phosa’s leadership and expressed confidence in the team’s ability to achieve even greater things in the future.

Dr. Phosa spoke about the importance of inclusion and equal opportunities for individuals with intellectual disabilities. He emphasized that the athletes want their talents and abilities to be recognized and respected, and deserve unwavering support from society.
