East­ern Cape provin­cial Drie Stokkies coach Des­mond Coet­zee, right, poses with one of his ath­letes, Les­ley Miggels, of Ri­et­bron who scooped a sil­ver medal at the South African Indige­nous Games Fes­ti­val hosted in Lim­popo last week. ‘The com­pe­ti­tion was one of the tough­est I wit­nessed in my two years as coach and I am over the moon to come home with a sil­ver medal from the games,’ said Coet­zee. His other ath­lete, Del­larise Chris­tian, came fourth but set a new provin­cial record after her jump of 10.08m. Coet­zee said his team had ended third over­all, which made them the only code in the prov­ince in the top three po­si­tions and also as the only team com­ing back home with a medal from the na­tional games
