Play sport with passion

Alida van der Merwe (15), a Gr. 10 learner of the Eunice High School, has been chosen as the first winner of the 2019 Bloemnews SuperSport Let’s Play Sports Star of the Month for her versatility and achievements in swimming, fencing, horse riding and pentathlon.

She won a silver medal at the Modern Pentathlon African Championships and Olympic Qualifier, held in Cairo, Egypt, on 23 February.

Modern pentathlon consist of swimming, laser run (part shooting and part running), fencing and show jumping.

Alida also took part in the first World Cup of the season from 27 February to 3 March, where she made it to the final round. This will earn her Pentathlon World Ranking (PWR) points, as will any of the other World Cup events. In order to qualify for the 2020 Olympic Games, pentathletes need to win their continental qualifier or earn enough PWR points through participation in World Cups, to be considered for the South African team that will go the Olympic Games.

Alida also won a gold medal at the South African u.17 Fencing Championship.

Alida’s motto is: ”#DOITWITHPASSION”.

  • SuperSport over time has evolved as the quintessential sports authority. With such strong sporting influence within the South African market, SuperSport has been perfectly poised to harness this power and rally the public and corporates to truly make a difference in society.

SuperSport identified that there were huge issues severely inhibiting the development of children through skills learned by playing, physical education and sport – all of which are imperative to the holistic development of young people.

It was from this insight that Let’s Play was born in November 2005 with the aim of elevating awareness of our social situation and to introduce and encourage play, activity and sport in schools.

  • All learners from the ages of six to 18 that excell in sport, can be entered. Get more information from Lynne Landman or Juanré Viviers at Z PR on 051-522-9574 or send an email to supersport@zpr.co.za.
