Cape Town - Contrary to various media reports
that the athletes village in Rio de Janeiro is ‘unlivable’, Team South Africa has settled in well according to SASCOC CEO and Team SA Chef de Mission, Tubby Reddy.
They are currently residing in an apartment block which provides excellent accommodation, air conditioning,
reliable wi-fi, reception areas, balconies, a swimming pool and other amenities.
“Our team has settled in well and the block that we chose is
ready. We have been lucky and hope all goes well throughout the rest of the Games,” said Reddy.
"Our football teams men and women
are in Brazil with the men in Brazilia and the women here in Rio in an
apartment reserved for football. The conditions in these apartments are also
very good with all amenities in good working order," added Reddy.
