'Preparations have gone well,' says cyclist Nic Dlamini as he heads to Olympics
Cyclist Nic Dlamini has raced in the Tour de France, the first black South African to do so.
Dlamini will also be representing Team South Africa at the Toyko Olympic games.
In 2019, he made national headlines after his arm was broken by SANParks rangers at the Table Mountain national park after they alleged he did not show his cycling permit.
Dlamini expressed his joy in coming back to the Olympics describing the training as being hard but at the same a blessing.
He tells Mandy Wiener more on The Midday Report.
