Minette Kruger (12), a Gr. 6 learner of the Eureka Primary School in Kimberley, has been chosen as the May winner of Express Northern Cape Let’s Play Sports Star of the Month for her achievements in netball, athletics, hockey and amateur wrestling.

Minette was the girls u.11 South African amateur wrest­ling youth champion in 2017 and received her South African colours in amateur wrestling.

This year, she competed at the South African amateur wrestling trials in Middelburg, and won a silver medal in the category for girls u.15.

She also competed in the boys u.13 category at the Tuks amateur wrestling tournament and received a bronze medal.

Minette was the girls u.13 gold medalist at the South African presidents tournament for schools. She was also awarded her South African colours for the second time.

Minette also plays for the Eureka Primary School’s u.12A netball and hockey teams.

At the Frances Baard athletics meeting for 2018, she ended third and second in the shot put and discus throw events for girls u.12.

Minette’s motto is: ”Practise as you participate and practise as a winner – then you will become a winner.”

) More on the Let’s Play initiative:

Over time, SuperSport has become the quintessential sporting authority.

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

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