Other sports

Completed in sprint athletics at a national level. (myplayers.co.za, 5 Jul 2017)


National team: 2016 at the Hong Kong Sevens
Reason: "I was a keen sprinter, but knew my sports career was going nowhere, because there are not a lot of opportunities in South African athletics, unless you got the money to pay your way. Everything changed at a festival. A woman complimented me on my physique, saying that she can see that I am strong and fast. She then asked whether I'd considered playing rugby. That was the first time I ever heard that women could play rugby. After that, I remember how quickly I fell in love with the game." (rekordeast.co.za, 23 Sep 2017; myplayers.co.za, 5 Jul 2017)
Memorable: Being a part of the team that won the 2016 Hong Kong Sevens, the first team to win a tournament in the city. "That’s a memory I will never forget. To play in a final and win an amazing game of rugby in front of 70,000 people was a special occasion for all of us." (myplayers.co.za, 5 Jul 2017)
