THERE is nothing that can stop Greytown High athletes and they have proven this once again.

Five athletes attended the Menlopark athletics meeting in Pretoria as part of the Pietermaritzburg and District Team on February 1. Sportswomen and men from Greytown showed the big city schools how it’s done and brought home seven first, second or third places.

THEIR ACHIEVEMENTS INCLUDED:

Zhane Mngadi — fourth open boys triple jump; Nkazimulo Mzolo — third U17 Boys triple jump with a new personal best of a brilliant 13.23m; Khaya Nduli — second U16 boys high jump; Akhona Mathonsi — third open girls high jump and second open girls 200m (where she ran against the 200m SA champion) and first open girls 100m.

But the star of the day was undoubtedly Siyabulela Xulu. This young man just keeps adding records to his name. He jumped his way to a gold in the U17 boys long jump with his new personal best jump of 6.78m. However, he left the spectators in awe as he broke the triple jump record with a massive jump of 14.23m — also a new personal best jump for him. Keep your eyes on this young man — he broke the U16 triple jump record at Grey College last year too.

The management from the school was exceedingly proud of all of the athletes as they keep shining wherever they go.
