Road to Rio TV show on air

Episode Five of the Road to Rio 2016 television programme is currently being flighted on SuperSport.

First up we take a look at Akani Simbine the up-and-coming 100 and 200-metre sprinter and current Zone VI champion.

Staying with athletes and Casper Schutte, javelin ace and 2012 Paralympian, relays his story and looks forward to Rio.

Then we took a look at the wheelchair rugby team that trains at Pretoria University. This code is a Paralympic sport so we thought we’d investigate the South African version of the sport

Lastly we showcase korfball, a sport that falls under the umbrella of Olympic governing body SASCOC, and what exactly this entails.
