More ramps :)

-The Huzhou Extreme Games in China- It was an honor that I got invited to this event last month. There were 8 competitors in the final and I got 8th place. Even though I didn't do that well I could still come home to tell the I2B clubs that life is not about always winning but about giving your best for the One who has given you the talent.

A 7 star hotel, we didn't stay here :) The food was still good where we stayed:

The skatepark for the contest:

I met these two awesome people on the plane. They both love the Lord and we prayed together after the flight.

Athletics for people with disabilities by Fanie

-In Memory of Clive Langenhoven- Clive Langenhoven grew up as a talented soccer player, playing for the Sparkling stars and Maties. After a head injury and severe migraines, Clive was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He had a brain operation that effected the one side of he's body and needed to learn how to walk and write again, but even with these adversities Clive always saw hope and made use of his second chances, and grabbed his opportunities, he started with athletics for people with disabilities and later on became a student at ETA (Sports College). Clive was always keen to help me and assisting and motivating the other athletes, he had a real interest in coaching and even coached his own soccer team in his community. A few months ago he heard the tumor was back, but he's request to the Lord was that God should please use His life! I believe God used his life as a testimony, being positive and having hope, always in these difficult circumstances. Clive passed away at the age of 24, thank You Jesus that we can Celebrate Clive's life, and that your plan and will for Clive's life is good, we ask that the impact of his life would leave a legacy of hope In Jesus Name, Amen! 
In the photo below is Clive, myself and Candy, Clive's training partner which he use to call "Pit bull". 

-Western Province trials- The season is up and running with a few local races to look forward to.

-Awards Evening- I was a guest at Steenberg High School's award's evening.
