South Africa Commonwealth Games

Wow Africa is huge! Did you know Africa is the world's second largest and second most populated continent on the planet? Did you know that Africa covers six percent of the earth!!!. And about 80 percent of Africa is made up of black Africans. Did you know that Africa has 55 states and on each coast line is the Indian ocean and South Atlantic ocean?

Did you know that there are 52.98 million people in South Africa? South Africa is located in the Southern tip of Africa. South Africa has eleven different languages and the names of them are Afrikaans, English, Ndebele, Northern Sotho, Sotho, Swazi, Tswana, Tsonga, Venda, Xhosa and Zulu. Two percent of South Africans speak the first language. The rest mostly speak a little English. Did you know that English was the first language to be spoken in South Africa, before Afrikaans?

South Africa sports: Football (soccer) Did you know Football is the most popular sport in South Africa. Another thing did you know they hosted the 2010 FIFA World Cup the first one in Africa. Cricket was the second most popular sport in South Africa and is mostly a British popular sport.

South Africa’s cricket team is named the Proteas. Rugby is another very popular sport in Africa and also a very popular sport for me too. South Africa’s rugby team is very good and intelligent. Their team was unbeaten in this sport and they still remain unbeaten.

South Africa flag: The South African flag was replaced in 27th of April in 1994, at the South African general election in 1994. The flag that had been chosen to replace the flag was last replaced in 1928. The designer of the flag was State Herald Frederick Brownell. The flag had a horizontal red band on the top and blue on the bottom with equal size of the red. At the very front of the flag is black with a triangle shape. separated by a central green band that ends to each edge, which splits the colours apart. The green is like a Y but sideways.

South Africa 7s team in the Commonwealth Games are amazing. They’ve beaten the All Blacks, England and Scotland. South Africa beat Scotland 15-12 and has never lost yet. The game was held at Ibrox stadium and Scotland was down 21-0. After half time Scotland began scoring tries. Unlucky for Scotland they lost. Hopefully they improve and make a good comeback.
