Onkgopotse Tiro Saul (10), a Gr. 4 learner of the St. Patrick’s College, has been chosen as the Express Northern Cape Let’s Play Sports Star of the Month for September.

This title was bestowed on her for her achievements in rhythmic gymnastics.

Onkgopotse is a level-4 gymnast of the Rhythmia Gymnastics Club in Kimberley.

She won gold medals at all the competitions this year.

Onkgopotse participated in the Rhythmia Club Competition, the Northern Cape Qualifying Com­petition, Klerksdorp School of Gymnastics High Performance Circuit Competition, the Gold Reef Rhythmic Gymnastic Championship (best in clubs) and the Floors Rhythmic Hub Competition.

For the Northern Cape Qualifying Competitions she was also the best of all the clubs for level-4 gymnasts with a score of 14,20.

At the South African Rhythmic Gymnastics Championships she was crowned the best level-4 gymnast out of 53 competitors in the u.11 age group.

Onkgopotse’s motto is: “Hard work pays off”.

More on the Let’s Play initiative

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.
