About Athlete

I’ve been playing all kinds of sports ever since I can remember. No matter in which sport I have participated I have done well and achieved. I am very hard working and highly motivated on and off any sporting field, being the best I can be. I love playing for teams and pushing myself to achieve the best I can. The American Colleges will offer me the first class opportunity to complete my studies and help me achieve my dreams of going to the Olympics.

What makes you different?

Since I have received proper coaching, over the last 8 months, I have realized what I am capable of achieving vast improvement in terms of the height I can jump, in very a short space of time. With my Height and a lot of hard work I believe I am capable of achieving anything I set my mind to 😊 but mostly…My Coach has identified that I am a hard worker and a disciplined athlete. I still feel I haven’t reached my full potential. I have learnt how to cope during the good and the bad, which I think is key to success and me being different...

Why do you want to compete in college?

Competing in US college Athletics is a dream of mine and being able to train all year round with correct facilities will make a huge difference in my growth as an athlete … which would ultimately widen my opportunities into more competitive athletics… delivering possibilities of being part of a Team, assisting the Team to a championship. In building close relationships with coaches along the way I know it will also help me reach my full potential and goals for High Jump, 400m and possibly other events… which will ultimately lead me to become a professional Athlete.

College Goals?

My college goals are to represent my College and help and support the Team in achieving the College’s goals. I would like to study and achieve a degree or diploma in Sports Science or Architecture (I haven’t decided yet). During my stay at College, I look forward to work on my physical and mental state, to improve my day-to-day routine.

Anything else we should know?

Ever since I started jumping when I was 10 years old, with only a few tips as guidance on how to jump from a high school student, I knew that this sport was in my blood and meant for me.

Only in the last 8 months have I received coaching from one of South Africa’s top high Jump Coaches, who has shown me what I am truly capable of achieving.
