South Africans live and breathe sport. We have always done well at it and here we celebrate those great moments that makes us one of the best sporting countries on the planet.
1. 1995 Rugby World Cup
When the ‘Bokke’ won the World Cup in 1995, it was not a victory for the rugby team but a victory for the new ‘Rainbow Nation.’ After being reintroduced to the sporting world, South Africa did not hold back to try to make a statement to the rest of the sporting world. There are so many memories that have made their mark on the South African conscience; Mandela wearing the Springbok jersey, the plane swooping over the stadium and the crucial drop-kick goal by Joel Stransky to make sure we won the Webb Ellis trophy.
