With just around five months and exactly six months to go before Rio Olympics and Paralympics swing into action respectively, the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) launched an exciting campaign named ‘TeamSA Rise’ in Johannesburg on Monday, 7 March. The #teamSArise viral campaign is aimed at supporting South Africa’s Olympic and Paralympic athletes as they make their final preparations to represent the nation at the biggest international sporting events. The campaign will feature on the social media platforms of Twitter, Facebook and YouTube and all South Africans are urged to join in the conversation and support TeamSA as they continue with their journey to Rio. Commuters travelling between Pretoria and Johannesburg spotted a banner that has been erected at Waterfall City in Midrand asking all to #RISE and this has created lots of excitement. Twitter was abuzz on Monday morning with most people tweeting and retweeting about this exciting campaign. – See more at: http://www.sascoc.co.za/2016/03/08/sascoc-announce-teamsa-rise-campaign-ahead-of-rio-olympics-and-paralympics/#sthash.4IqK4MDl.dpuf
