Top honour for Khwela
- Updated: June 21, 2011
Commonwealth Games medallist Jennifer Khwela has been selected as one of the Mail & Guardian’s Top 200 Young South Africans.
The Mail & Guardian Top 200 Young South Africans spans different categories such as the arts; business; civil society; environment; media; politics; sciences & technology; health; education and sport.
Among reknowned South African sporting stars to be honored were AB De Villiers; Lonwabo Tsotsobe; Hashim Amla (all cricket); and athlete Khotso Mokoena.
Nineteen-year-old KwaZulu-Natal based Khwela made her mark on the international gymnastics scene by being the first South African to win gold in an international artistic gymnastics competition. This was when she won gold on the value in the Doha World Cup last year.
She also won silver at the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi, India last year.
Khwela is still recovering from a wrist injury suffered while competing overseas earlier this year but is busy focusing on the World Cup in Korea next month.
