Mr. Blick thanked Multichoice Uganda for sponsoring the team adding that he was confident they would represent the country well.

“Uganda was among the top recognized countries at the opening and I have confidence that this year’s team will also do great wonders,” he said,

“They have been under residential training since May although their training started 3-4 years ago.”

While introducing the team, Peter Chilengat, one of the team managers noted that there are many potential athletes but they are not inspired and motivated.

He asked that DStv services be extended to the four training camps so that the young athletes can watch their fellows and get inspired to work even harder.
