Watch out Usain Bolt, there's a new speedster in town! 17-year-old Rudy Samuel is a future race track star!

My name is Rudy Samuel. I'm 17 and I recently got full colours for athletics at my school, Northcliff High in Johannesburg.

To be honest you with you to get these colours was a bit tough. I had to train hard and be dedicated.

I managed to run 11,75 seconds, 11,38 seconds, 10,94 seconds and 11 seconds and 22,9 seconds in my 200 m race in a relatively short season compared to previous years.

With God on my side, my family, my coach Mr Neil Van Der Walt, Mr Bailey and my dear friends, I managed to achieve it all.
