Tokyo Olympics: South Africa Dim Shujaa’s Hopes


South Africa has dimmed Kenya’s 2020 Tokyo Olympics hopes in Rugby Sevens after handing them a second loss.

The Shujaa were a medal prospect for Kenya but after going down 5-14 to their African counterparts this dream went up in smoke.

Kenya had earlier in the morning narrowly lost 14-19 to the USA in their opener and needed a comeback against South Africa to revive their chances.

Kenya’s medal chances now lie with track and field athletes.
