Boland Athlete of the Year

German Lewis, our cross-country superstar has been awarded Boland Athlete of the Year.

German joined the Foundation in 2012 and his motivation really only extended to enjoying the after school sports on offer with his friends. It was here, however, that German discovered his love for running, more specifically, long distance running. Under the caring guidance of Coach Corrie, German soon began to compete in the Boland cross-country meets. With commitment, effort and training, German went on to compete at national school level, where he came second in his age group.

German has come a long way from being the shy boy, who was just keen to spend time with his friends on the sports field. His talent and training has paid off. Well done German, we are incredibly proud of you!
