The Minister of Youth, Sport and Culture Development, Thapelo Olopeng yesterday launched the Region V Youth Games Gaborone 2018 Local Organising Committee (LOC).

Peloewetse will lead the committee as Botswana prepares to host the regional games between December 7 and 16.

The games would attract the best Under-20 athletes from the African Union Sports Council (AUSC) Region V countries.

“The event is designed to give young athletes from these countries International games experience,” Olopeng said.

“In order to successfully host these games, we have invested in infrastructure development, refurbishment and maintenance of

facilities,” he said.
