Afrobasket: Angola wins yet again!

Incredible. Angola wins Afrobasket for an amazing ninth time. We're incredibly proud of each and everyone of you boys! And of the organisers, who demonstrated the capabilities of our country.

Afrobasket 2007

Oh. My. God. What can I say about Afrobasket 2007 in Angola. Perhaps just: WE ROCK!!!! :-) Not only did the stadiums get finished on time (incredible, since some of them started less than 6 months before the beginning of the competition), but they actually look pretty good, and stood the test of the first few games without falling over :-) In addition, although there have been a few glitches, and whilst the website is definitely not the fastest or the most professional in the world, it does the job. For all of its faults, this has been one of the most organised events in Africa, and comments like these are extremely encouraging. Maybe one day we will actually see the World Cup in Angolan soil.

I'm extremely proud of the work the entire country has put in, and I think that every Angolan shares the same feeling too. Now all we need is for the boys to bring it back home tomorrow.
