The 2010 National F3J teams (juniors and seniors) returned to South Africa on Monday morning, 9 August 2010.
After enduring appalling conditions and "interesting" organisation, the seniors placed 12th out of the 29 nations participating & the juniors 4th. The latter were actually slated for 3rd right until 10 minutes before prize giving, when an error by the scorers was rightfully acknowledged & Slovakia was moved up to 3rd place.
A warm welcome awaited there return at ORT, with senior executives from SASCOC, SAMAA, Transformation & Development, the MGA, family & friends all cheering their arrival. Well wishes have been received from Gideon Sam (SASCOC), Kev Storie (GM AeCSA, etc, etc - suggesting that we have achieved a tremendous amount of awareness amongst the very top echelons of sport & aerosport in South Africa.
