Talented athlete Carlyle Stewart (14) has been chosen as the Express Let’s Play Sports Star of the Month for October based on his achievements in hockey and mountain bike riding, as well as for his dedication to being a para-cycling guide for the physically disabled.

Currently in Gr. 9, Carlyle plays for the High School Sentraal’s u.16A hockey team.

As far as mountain bike riding goes, he achieved an overall ninth position in the Free State Spur Mountain Bike League in the u.15 group.

During the April school holiday, Carlyle participated as the guide for Nielbert Mostert in the VI category for para-cycling (tandem) at the Nedbank National championship for the physically and visually disabled in Port Elizabeth.

The pair won four gold medals in four different distance events. They also set a new South African record in the 2 000 m with a time of 3:33.63.

Carlyle’s motto is: “Success is not about emerging victoriously, but competing and leaving a legacy.”

Carlyle is the lastExpress Let’s Play Sports Star of the month for 2017.

Entries for the monthly competition have closed for the year.

This year’s ­Express Let’s Play Sports Star of the Year will be crowned later at a private function in Bloemfontein.

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 have proven to be 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 South Africans’ social situation and to ­introduce and encourage play, activity and sport in schools.
