All-rounder Justin Pieterse (16), a learner of the Dr Böhmer School in Bloemfontein, has been chosen as the Express SuperSport Let’s Play Sports Star of the Month for August.

He was chosen for his achievements in ath­letics, rugby and cricket.

At the Athletics Free State meeting, Justin obtained a gold medal in both the 100 m and 200 m sprint for u.16 boys. He got gold medals in both sprint events.

Justin was also chosen for the u.16 Free State rugby team.

His rugby prowess saw him selected as captain of the development team.

Justin’s inclusion in the u.19 Free State Cricket team proves that he is an all-rounder in sport.

This team competed in a tour­nament in Sasolburg from 16 to 18 August, after which Justin was named as the player of the tournament.

He was also chosen for the provincial u.19 cricket team, which will compete at the national competition.

Justin’s motto is: “Trust, discipline and respect”.

More on the Let’s Play initiative

Over time, SuperSport 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 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.

The Let’s Play initiative was born in November 2005 with the aim of elevating awareness of the social situation and intro­ducing and encouraging play, activity and sport in schools.
