Atlete laat rekords spat in 2017

Deur Willem Kurpershoek

Usain Bolt, widely known as the best athlete of all time once said, “Anything is possible, I don’t think limits.”  And with that mindset, Middies’ athletes shined bright this year.  They were truly unstoppable on the track and in the field.  
Toe die eerste skoot van Middies se atletiekseisoen geklap het, was alle Middie-ondersteuners baie optimisties. En hulle het ’n goeie rede gehad, want met die jaarlikse interhuis het ons reeds gesien waarvan Middie-atlete gemaak is.  Daar is niks minder as 3 interhuis-rekords gebreek nie! Met die ondersteuning van die hele skool het Kaitlyn Gonsalves (0/14) die 400 m in ’n rekordtyd van 1:04.30 afgelê. Verder het Somey Uys (0/19) die 1500 m in 5:25.00 afgelê en Jan Joubert (0/15) het die spiesgooirekord met ’n massiewe gooi van 52 m laat spat.  
Middies het ook 11 atlete wat gekwalifiseer het vir die Nkangalaspan. Genevieve Hambidge en Hannah Lombard (0/14) het saam met Chané Grey en Miné Nelson die 0/15-span gehaal. By die 0/17’s is Lerika Oosthuizen en Melandri Smit in die span opgeneem. Die seuns het ook nie teleurgestel nie, met Jan Joubert, Lekoko Nkadimeng (0/15), Wayde Wilcox (0/17) en Jacques Keulder (0/19) wat almal ook in die span opgeneem is.  
Jan Joubert se uitstekende atletiekseisoen het voortgeduur met die Mpumalanga-kampioenskappe waar hy in die Mpumalangaspan opgeneem is. Hy het Mpumalanga in Durban by die SA-kampioenskappe gaan verteenwoordig.  
Unfortunately, our athletics season ended with a “false start”, as ironically enough, the interhigh had to be cancelled due to continuous rain.  Nevertheless, our athletes shone bright and will be back next year, trying to conquer the athletics track!
