Additional information

BOLD MOVE
Born in a small village called Ha Moima in Lesotho, knew his country would be unable to support his sporting dream. Relocated to Mauritius in 2011 to train at the IAAF High Performance Training Centre (HPTC). Coached by past Commonwealth Games medallist and Olympic finalist Stephan BUCKLAND. "In terms of the support I receive from the HPTC, the list is endless. I get almost everything an athlete needs in order to make it as one of the best in the continent, if not the world." (iaaf.org, 5 Dec 2017; 2016 Olympic News Service, 5 Dec 2017)


SCHOLARSHIP 
One of a few athletes from Lesotho to receive an Olympic scholarship prior to the Rio 2016 Olympics Games. (alafrica.com, 5 Dec 2017)
