Re­union with for­mer coach in Bei­jing

CityPress - - Sport - – Daniel Mothowagae

Caster Se­menya this week worked for the first time with for­mer coach Mike “Sponge” Seme since the two parted ways four years ago.

“Sponge and I have been good to each other,” said Se­menya of her erst­while men­tor, who is Team SA’s mid­dle-dis­tance coach at the cham­pi­onships.

“It re­minds me of the times we used to travel to­gether. I still think of him as my coach, be­cause he is my men­tor. I be­came a world cham­pion be­cause of him. We parted ways, but he is still the best coach around – and it’s good to see him do­ing what he knows best.

“He is here to guide, take note of the times and be some­one who will push and shout at me to work harder.”
