Push your­self

Women's Health (South Africa) - - YOUR BODY -

Once Michelle gets on the board, there’s no doubt she knows what she’s do­ing. She’s been kitesurf­ing since she was 16 and at one of her com­pe­ti­tions, there weren’t any women com­pet­ing, so she joined the boys – and placed sec­ond. Now that the sport is grow­ing, she’s stoked that she can share the podium with more women. “Be­cause I’ve been hav­ing so much com­pe­ti­tion, I can push my­self harder,” she says.
