Sport - Date: 25 May 2024


The team from the Wavhudi Gymnastics Club in Vhembe returned from the Limpopo Gymnastics Championship held in Lephalale on Saturday triumphantly, finishing the tournament on top. They will represent Limpopo in the national tournament on 14 and 15 June in Pretoria.

Apart from winning the Vhembe and provincial championships twice in a row, the team has a lot to be proud of. According to the team’s coach, Ms. Angel Mulaudzi, the team members are determined to bring back the trophy. “We knew we would be the winners,” she said. “We have got a winning formula, which is practice, practice, and practice!”

She told Limpopo Mirror that they had started preparations a long time ago and added that winning for them had not come as a surprise. “We are celebrating the success that has come through hard work,” she said.

Mulaudzi has been the team’s head coach for two years. According to her, the gymnasts did not take long to acclimatise to her coaching philosophy. The club does not have many members, but their young gymnasts are motivated to do well. Despite lacking the facilities available to other clubs, the team's determination remains unwavering.

Asked about their level of readiness for the national tournament, Mulaudzi was quick to mention that they had what was needed to be crowned national champions. She said they were going to prove all the critics wrong. “We are going to show everyone that our participation in the national championship is not by default,” she said.
