“I’m feeling very good and well rested and fresh. Did some time in Japan for three weeks in preparation for commonwealth so I’m feeling very positive and ready to perform to the max!

I wish for a big throw where the timing and teqnique comes together , that one where it just flies and flies. i have searched for it this year and not yet found it. but it is on its way!”


Personal Best – 80.10 – Belville (RSA) – 27.03.2014
Seasons best – 80.10 – Belville (RSA) – 27.03.2014
All time SA ranking – 12th


In 2010 he came 6th at the World Junior Champs with a throw of 74.13 which was his pb at the time. And on the all time junior SA list he is holding a 9th place with a 75.72 which he threw in 2011 in Gaborne. In 2014 he has also thrown a 77.59. We are very excited to see how he develops at major championships like the Commonwealth games and we hope to him claim one of the top spots in the world rankings in the future!
