There were no medals but Namibia’s athletes at the Summer Olympic Games gave their all and did their country proud.
Competing against the best in the world, they held their own and achieved some personal milestones in the process.
As Minister of Sport Kazenambo Kazenambo summed it up afterwards, now is the time to evaluate Namibia’s performances while learning from the victors.
London 2012 will go down in history as the greatest Olympic Games of them all.
The athletes’ performances were superlative, the Opening and Closing Ceremonies mixed wondrous casts and visual effects with the best of British music and good old British humour, and the thousands of volunteers added a unique touch of British hospitality and friendliness, although the security at times was a bit over the top.
Even the legendary Usain Bolt had a skipping rope confiscated at one of the check points. But the greatest legacy of the Games was the fantastic support from the British public.
