Figure skating sisters jet off to South Korea (Jan. 28, 2018) - article/video: https://www.iol.co.za/sunday-tribune/sport/figure-skating-sisters-jet-off-to-south-korea-12967896
DURBAN - Two Durban sisters will jet off to South Korea this week to represent South Africa as torch bearers in the 23rd Winter Olympics to be held in PyeongChang early in February.
The figure skaters, Tamarah Jacobs, 25, and Chelsea, 15, of Essenwood, were personally invited by the organising committee to attend as delegates. They were also the only South Africans invited to bear the prestigious Olympic torch.
The sisters, and more so, Tamarah, shares a special bond with the South Koreans. She was among the first group of South African figure skaters to participate in the “Dream Programme” back in 2005. She is now a full time figure skating coach in Durban.
Figure skating in South Africa faces challenges
Figure skating in South Africa is very much regarded as a fringe sport. Like most minor sports in the country, development and raising the standard can be hampered by the lack of funds and accessibility of training facilities.
CGTN's Julie Scheier went to find out more and filed this story. (Dec. 24, 2017): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAKhNSRASys
