Jennifer Khwela of eThekwini Gymnastics Academy has recent done South Africa proud by qualifying for 2 Apparatus Finals at the 2012 FIG Challenger Cup in Ostrava, Czech Republic.
Jennifer has been out of competition for the last year, recovering from an ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament knee) Injury that she sustained in Korea during a competition. She has worked steadily to regain her strength and skills and this competition shows that hard work pays off !
Jennifer qualified tie 4th in the Vault qualifiers and then also placed in the same position in the finals, as well as 8th in the floor finals winning herself some Swiss Francs as a bonus, as well.
Well done Jennifer and Julie. Keep up the hard work !!
CONGRATULATIONS to Allan who recently won the South African Gymnastics Federation ‘Administrator of the Year’ award. What a brilliant achievement !
Allan was also rewarded for his long service as a National Board Member. He has worked very hard in various positions on the SAGF Committee for countless years and has contributed endlessly to gymnastics not only in KwaZulu Natal, but South Africa as whole.
One of his greatest contributions to RSA gymnastics is his Preschool & General Gymnastics programs and enthusiastic, child-centred approach to coaching. He has also been responsible for much of the admin side of things, such as club management software & competition scoring software, competition manager at numerous competitions, Brevet Judge, National Team coach. The list seems endless.
Well done Allan !! We are all very proud of you.
