Olympic Torch

is an athletics club seeking to build community and national interest in sports until Botswana becomes a nation that is excited about athletics. Athletics (Track & Field) is our starting point, however, we shall eventually reach other sporting codes. S4D is Registered with the Registrar of Societies in Botswana as a sports club recognized by the Botswana Athletics Association.

In Botswana, The existing sporting talent is not harnessed and fully utilized as there are limited programs and facilities that are easily accessible to individuals with sports interests. We seek to make available programs and platforms that will bring out the best of the best of what we have in different sporting disciplines as a nation.

S4D is particularly well positioned with respect to opportunities for innovation and partnerships with both government and private stakeholders on sports initiatives and programs. Through government support, a number of initiatives will be birthed to ultimately find, train and mentor available sporting talent and turn it into gold.

Through the S4D talent scouting program, the nation will be able to have a greater

representation in the regional and international competition platforms

increasing our chances of success
