DALINDA GNADE (6), a gr. 1 learner of the Merriespruit Primary School in Virginia, is Express Goldfields andamp; NFS’s SuperSport Let’s Play Sports Star of the Month for July.

Her impressive performance saw her scoop some prestigious medals in karate.

Dalinda is proof of the saying that dynamite comes in small packages.

She trains under Sensei Gordon Stevens and has an orange belt in karate.

Dalinda received two gold medals in kata and kumite at the Northern Free State Karate Championships.

Thereafter, she took part in the Karate Winter Challenge and once more won two gold medals in Kata and Kumite in her age division.

Dalinda’s future ambition is to run her own karate club where she will train karate-kas.

“I want my own dojo someday, that’s why hard work and diligence is my number one in life. I’m going to give my best,” says Dalinda.

More about Let’s Play

This year SuperSport’s Let’s Play celebrates ten years.

SuperSport over time has evolved as the quintessential sports authority.

With such strong sporting influence within the South African market, SuperSport has been perfectly poised to harness this power and rally the public and corporates to truly make a difference in society.

SuperSport identified that there were huge issues severely inhibiting the development of children through skills learned by playing, physical education and sport – all of which are imperative to the holistic development of young people.

It was from this insight that Let’s Play was born in November 2005 with the aim of elevating awareness of our social situation and to introduce and encourage play, activity and sport in schools.
