Renaldo May, a grade 5 pupil at Luxolo Intermediate School, has had an exceptional athletics season so far. He competes in the 10 year old age group, representing his school in the 100m and 200m sprints as well as the 1200m event.
He has shown promise from the first event of the season, the inter-schools, where he came second in all three events. At the Zonal meeting, he received the bronze medal for 100m and silver for 1200m, and from here he was selected to compete at the District athletics meeting in the 1200m. Renaldo again won a silver medal at the District event, and went on to receive gold in the Provincial competition.
He has received tremendous support from the school’s coaching team, and his brother Elton May. His next chance to excel will be at the National Athletics Championships, which will be held in Paarl.
