Special congradulations to the Silver Medalist Mr. Nigel Amos and the other three outstanding athletes together with the technical team who have given us hope that it is possible in future to get more medals.  Although we did not achieve the target of winning at least two medals, the performance of the team gives us hope, and with the political support that we pledge as the Legislature together with the implementation of intensified developmental and training programmes, there is no doubt that Botswana will go far in Sports.

We also applaud the Botswana National Olympic Committee and the Ministry of Youth, Sport and Culture for the support and assistance extended to the team during the London games.
