We will share this information as soon as it becomes available."

He added, saying that "I'd like to inform you that our athletes have begun departing Zambia in a phased manner. Our boxing sensation, Patrick Chinyemba, is already in Paris for a pre-Games camp. The Copper Queens will follow shortly, with other athletes departing in succession. The entire team will regroup in Paris ahead of the Olympic Games."


"As we look forward to the Games, let us unite in support of Team Zambia. Their journey to Paris is not just their own, but that of our entire nation. We wish them the very best as they embark on this incredible Olympic adventure."
