    Let’s not be too carried away, we usually get around 9 to 11 gold medals in previous CommonWealth games in the last 3 editions. So with 4 or Gold and counting we are not doing badly but not to be too exited. If we can top South Africa that will be a good let’s remember that in 1994 we were 5th on the overall Medal table.

    Well done guys we will definitely lead Africa and become a force to reckon with in the World very soon.
