The AmaWheelaBoys’ preparations for the 2019 IWBF Africa Paralympic Qualifiers and subsequently the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games in Japan are going well.
The Sasol AmaWheelaBoys All-Stars basketball team is ready to take on their opponents in a tournament in Angola next month as they prepare for the 2019 IWBF Africa Paralympic Qualifiers and the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games in Japan.
The qualifiers begin in earnest next year and the AmaWheelaBoys are hard at work in their preparations for the Angola tournament which will be a six-nation tournament including the hosts, SA, Switzerland, and others which are yet to be announced.
Assistant coach Anele Kledi, speaking in an interview soon after one of their preparatory matches against SuperSport All-Stars at the Mandeville Indoor Sports Centre, said the team’s preparations for both the Angola tournament from 28 November to 3 December and the African qualifiers for the 2020 Paralympics were on track and that he was confident of bringing home the trophy from Angola.
Their readiness was clearly shown during the match against SuperSport in which the Amawheelaboys triumphed 77–40.
