JOHANNESBURG-- South Africa will host the first African Safari Gymnastics Competition at the Centurion Gymnastics Club here on July 20 and 21 with the participation of competitors from Japan, Bangladesh, Britain and South Africa.

Japan will be competing with a full complement of men and women's teams, says Shuichiro Kawaguchi, the Minister-Counsellor and Deputy Chief of Mission at the Japanese Embassy in South Africa, who adds that the participation of Japan in this competition is an extension of the good relationship between the two countries.

South Africa and Japan are good friends and we enjoy the relationship. South Africa is very important, and sports are a good example of relationship between countries. I believe in South Africa and that their young people have great talent. With gymnastics, Japan is a little bit ahead but if you look at sports like rugby, here South Africa is ahead of Japan.

South Africa also participates in an exchange programme where gymnasts and coaches benefit from training and preparation for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

The partnership between the South African Gymnastics Federation (SAGF) and the Japanese Gymnastics Association (JGA) commenced in 2015 when Morinari Watanabe, the then secretary of the JGA and member of the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) pledged a six-year support to the SAGF to improve the standard of Olympic-level gymnastics in South Africa.
