South African netball captain Bongi Msomi and swimmer Christian Sadie have been named as flag bearers for Team SA at Thursday’s opening ceremony of the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

The South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) made the announcement ahead of the event that will officially launch the global showpiece.

The date, 28 July, also marks exactly a year to go until the start of the 2023 Netball World Cup in Cape Town and Msomi will lead a team determined to make a strong impression at these Games in Birmingham.

Sadie recently won silver at the World Para Swimming Championships and will be striving to continue with his career progression when he takes the plunge in the pool later this week.
