This is year is a very good season for athletics at our university with Wayde van Niekerk and Gideon Trotter, who are now part of the team.

Wayde, the world’s second-fastest 200 m junior athlete, was seen in action at the UFS’s first-year athletics meeting. This proud resident of Armentum Residence at our Bloemfontein Campus has enrolled as a first-year in the BA Extended Programme.

Gideon, an Africa junior 100 m champion, also enrolled for the University Preparation Programme this year with the purpose to continue with Human Movement Sciences later. He will soon be seen in action at the Inter-Provincial Yellow Pages Championships in Johannesburg.

"Kovsies is excited and privileged to welcome athletes of this quality on the campus. “With stars like Thuso Mpuang, silver-medal 200 m athlete at the World Student Championships, Sean de Klerk, SA 200 m Junior Champion 2010 and Kagisho Kumbane we can produce an outstanding sprinting team," states DB Prinsloo, Director: KovsieSport (acting).
