This week’s Absolute Athlete of The Week mention goes to St Georges College’s Chengetayi Mapaya.
Chengetayi attained a massive 16.01 triple jump at the Southern Region Senior Track and Field Championships this weekend to win gold for Zimbabwe over athletes from 9 other Southern African nations.
Chengetayi has been jumping 15+ metres consistently this year in school and national competitions, but this 16+ jump exceeded even his expectations.
Well done, Chengetayi.
