KEEAN DE KLERK (12), a learner at the Truida Kestell Primary School in Bethlehem, has been chosen as May’s SuperSport Let’s Play Sports Star of the Month for Express Eastern Free State.

Keean has earned a brown belt in karate.

He also represents the Southern Free State u.13 squash team and has his Free State colours in squash.

Keean was selected to represent the South African Country School Team at the inter-provincial squash tournament in Port Elizabeth during the June/July holidays.

He will also present the Eastern Free State u.13 hockey team that will tour to Pietermaritzburg during the June/July holidays to participate in the ­KwaZulu-Natal inland u.13 central tournament.

His motto is: “A river cuts through rock not because of its power, but because of its persistence – Jim Watkins.”

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.

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.
