Barcelos - Game On
An online sports magazine for South African schools was launched in Pretoria this morning. Game On is the first of its kind and will contain extensive coverage of promising young athletes in both the popular and lesser known sports.
Barcelos, Cadac, Jetmaster, New Balance, Talent etc, Tuks Sport High School and the High Performance Centre, have thrown their weight behind the magazine as sponsors.
People at the launch was introduced to sporting legends like Khotso Mokoena (Olympic medal winner in the long jump), Caster Semenya (Olympic 800 metre medallist) and South Africa’s Olympic gold rowing team John Smit, Lawrence Brittian, Lawrence Ndlovu and James Thompson, as well as Bridgitte Hartley (who paddled her way to bronze at last year’s Games in London). Also present are former world junior triathlon champion Wian Sullwald and the talented Michaela Whitebooi, who won two gold medals at his year’s US Open Judo Tournament in Miami.
Barcelos also provided food for the "Cook Off" Competition and our Marketing Director, Johan van Eyk, participated in the fun as one of the judges of the Cook Off Competition.
The launch was a great success, and Barcelos wishes "Game On", all the best. May this magazine inspire our young and upcoming sport stars.
