The SA men’s beach volleyball team embark on the final leg of their quest to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics when they begin competing in Morocco on Sunday.

Veteran Leo Williams will spearhead the four-man outfit at the continental cup.

His teammates are Jerome Fredericks, Mthokozisi Mdingi and Clinton Stemmet.

“While we are mindful that there were many obstacles that had to be navigated by us as a National Federation and yourselves as Team SA we are however confident that your inexhaustible will to win, will see you reach the podium as the champions of Africa,” said Volleyball SA president Anthony Mokoena.

SA, who will have to win in Morocco to book a spot for a two-man team, last had an Olympic beach volleyball entry at London 2012.
