The youngster, who’s currently in her first year at Stellenbosch University, has tried different disciplines before settling on javelin and since then she has been breaking records and plans to break more in the future.

“I have broken my school’s records, in primary school, I broke it in grade 6 (2010) and grade 7 (2011) and then again in high school. At the African Youth Championships in 2015, I broke the record with a 49,70m throw.”

The youngster believes there is a huge gap in the way sports stories are reported. She says it would be great to read more about women in sports.

“Even though we have athletes like Caster Semenya who wins gold, there’s always news about the men in athletics and it’s nice to read about them, but it would be nice to read more about women as well,” says Germishuys.
