This competition is self-funding, meaning that in order to participate these gymnasts will need to raise funds to pay their own costs i.e. Accommodation, transport, competition attire, entry fees etc. (R12,000.00 per gymnast is required in order to participate). It will really be disappointing should it not be possible for these gymnasts to compete in their own country, due to lack of funds.

Any financial help, which will enable these talented gymnasts to participate and represent South Africa, will be most appreciated.

Bank details for the South African Gymnastics Federation (SAGF) are as follows:
Account name : SAGF
Bank : Nedbank
Branch : Cresta
Branch Code : 191305

Reference : IPC – ATC (to enable SAGF to allocate payments correctly).

World Championships Update

WC-2013-Xolani-Dong-DongUnfortunately, Xolani did not qualify to compete in the finals (only the top 8 gymnasts from the qualifying round compete in the finals) he did however gain invaluable experience and exposure to the best trampoline gymnasts in the world. This will definitely motivate Xolani to improve his skills and work harder knowing what is expected and what he needs to improve on.

Xolani did however get noticed and was mentioned on the Federation Internationale de Gymnastique (FIG) (International Gymnastics Governing Body) twitter site: “FIG official@officialFIG:  Xolani Nxumalo (RSA):  Bends legs on mount skill but gets amazing height on both elements”. 

We are all very proud of Xolani and know that the invaluable experience he has gained at his first senior international competition will definitely give Xolani the confidence he needs to improve and possibly even get a medal at the next international competition he competes at.

We were not advised if the World Championships will appear on TV in South Africa but I will let you know should the event be televised.

I have attached an FIG advertising video that was made shortly after the gymnasts arrived in Bulgaria. (Look out for Xolani who is in the beginning of the video).

Xolani sincerely thanks all his supporters and would especially like to thank his sponsors who made it possible for him to compete at this prestigious event.

Xolani qualifies to compete at World Championships

Xolani Nxumalo (to the right) has been selected to represent South Africa at the World Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria but due to lack of funds may not be afforded the opportunity of competing. The team will depart on 3 November, returning 10 November 2013.

We appeal to companies or anyone who may be in a position to assist Xolani with sponsorship Estimated costs:  entry fee, travel, accommodation and meals (excluding competition attire and any pocket money) is estimated at R32 000.  (The deposit of R10,000.00 is required by 31 July 2013).

Any amount will be appreciated.
