South Africa’s men’s hockey team has caused a major upset in Pool B at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games in Japan.

The Proteas who are ranked 14th in the world, have beaten fifth-ranked Germany 4-3 to record their first win of the tournament. They will play Canada in another Pool B match on Friday.

Earlier, Tatjana Schoenmaker qualified fastest for the 200-metre breaststroke final.

The 100-metre breaststroke silver medallist won her semi-finals in 2:19:33 – more than a second faster than the second-fastest qualifying time of Russian teenager, Evgenia Chikunova.

Schoenmaker will be joined in Friday’s final by compatriot Kaylene Corbett, who won her semi-final to qualify fourth fastest.
