PHSG is proud of Coach Shane Smit, our talented athletics coach with willpower like no other. Coach Smit continues to reach new heights and break more records than ever before, bringing home the gold, despite having one leg 4cm shorter than the other.
He is dedicated and hardworking and strives to coach others to achieve their best. In an interview with the Rekord Newspaper, he boasted about the impressive 31 medals won at the interschool tournament this year. “Altogether, the girls from ages u/14 to u/19 won 62 medals; I feel extremely proud to say that 31 of those medals were earned by learners I coach,” said Coach Smit.
His dream is to attend the World Para Athletics Championships in Dubai in November where he is set to break more records. PHSG wishes him the best of luck. We know he will make us proud!
