Pumo Mphou, Tshepang Lenko and Owethunathi Yiliwe are names you should remember.

During the past 2 months Wigehof Primary in Bloemfontein’s athletes were participating in several zonal meetings held at the Free State Athletics’ stadium.

The last zonal meeting was held on the 18th of February after it was postponed due to rain the previous week. Pumo, Tshepang and Owethunathi were the stars who made it through to compete for a place in the Free State team in Sasolburg on the 2nd of March.

Pumo got an overall 3rd place, competing against Grey College boys and receiving a bronze medal. Unfortunately our 3 athletes could not go to Sasolburg due to financial constraints as well as it was in the middle of our test week.

Nonetheless Wilgehof Primary is so proud of them and are excited to see what they will be bringing to the table next year.
