• Sport is part of the core of my existence.
• I have a BURNING passion for this wonderful game of netball.
During my school years I competed in pentathlon and was the SA gold medallist in this event and also in the 300m hurdles.
Netball was my team sport and I was selected as one of the top 20 players in South Africa – (position GD+WD).
I went to Stellenbosch University, to study Human Science, and I still could not choose between netball and athletics, so I did both and competed on National level – to the frustration of my coaches.
In 1990 I was awarded as the best netball player in South Africa.
While playing for the SA PROTEA Team, one of my highlights was being awarded the silver medal at the World Cup, Birmingham in 1995.
In 1986 I got my Springbok colours in Heptathlon and broke the Africa Record in this event.
During my years as a netball player, I also umpired and was awarded my SA A grading in 2003 and got my International grading in 2008.
