Anrune Weyers and Caitlin Rooskrantz have added more gold medals to our list

SA is killing it in the sports arena!


Within the last couple of months, South Africa has been living on a high as we’ve been dominating the sports arena. From the South African Netball team winning the 2019 Africa Netball Cup to the Springboks winning the 2019 Rugby World Cup, we’ve been swimming in gold. And now we have two more additions – Anrune Weyers and Caitlin Rooskrantz.

On Sunday, Anrune Weyers won gold in the 400m T47 race at the World Para Athletics Championship in Dubai. The 27-year-old won South Africa’s first gold medal at the Championship. She also broke a 17-year record when she crossed the finish line in 55.79 seconds. That same evening she was also awarded the award of Sportswoman of the Year with a Disability at the SA Sports Awards.

Recently, 17-year-old Caitlin Rooskrantz became the first international gold medalist in gymnastics for South Africa. The matric student from Johannesburg competed in the Artistic World Championships in Stuttgart. Caitlin’s score was 49.466 and she has qualified for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

We are so proud of these amazing women and can’t wait to support what they do next!
