South Africa wants to duplicate the flush and pride that the World Cup brought it

The June 25, 2010, By Rodney Eriksen

It seems that there is nothing stopping them now. South Africa is aiming for a roll, and wished to duplicate the flush and pride that the World Cup games brought it.; South Africa wants to duplicate the flush and pride that the World Cup brought it

South Africa wants to tackle no less than the Olympic Games. First the 1995 Rugby World Cup, now the greatest sports show in the world, and next the Olympic Games.

These days, Cape Town is the epicenter of an earthquake of sorts, and International Olympic Committee Jacques said that the city had already a viable bid for the Games in 1997, when it finished third behind Athens and Rome in its effort to secure the 2004 Olympic Games. South African president Jacob Zuma has agreed to meet with Rogge before the football finished here.

Of course, one of the impediments is the question whether or not the South African World Cup is a success at all, and of course it is not finished yet. Apart from that, there is the ever-present debate on whether the billions spent on the Cup could have gone to feed the poor, build desperately needed housing, hospitals’ and infrastructure struggling to keep up with its international reputation.

Of course, the last thing anyone expects is to eradicate three centuries of Apartheid with a big festival. However, the World Cup has lifted the hearts of South Africans of either color, and has shown them that such things are a possibility.
