With this type of high class exposure to international sport events, and considdering the very young ages of these contestants from the Thabazimbi Kickboxing Club,we can look forward to potential world champs should they endure.

Congratulations to the very proud parents of these champs and thank you to those who contributed to make this happen for them. No medals does not mean defeat, but ending in the top ten makes all top competitors.

Sport is not only about medals, but also about being part of the best of the best. You made us proud and keep on doing the greatest sport on earth.
