Banyana intensify preps


JOHANNESBURG. — Banyana Banyana’s preparations for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games are in full swing at the Nike Football Training Centre in Pimville, Soweto.

The South African senior women’s national team is holding regular training camps to ensure the players are ready when the tournament kicks off in August.

“We have fallen behind in terms of fitness if you compare to when we played against Equatorial Guinea in October last year. Our main priority is to keep the fitness levels up. I am glad we are back early in the year so we can get those levels to the highest intensity,” said Banyana Banyana head coach Vera Pauw. —
