Wenda Nel

TRACK ATH­LETE

Women's Health (South Africa) - - THE FLIGHT THE HOTEL LOYALTY PROGRAMMES PAY NOW, T -

The fu­ture of sport is fe­male and nowhere is that clearer than with our track ath­letes. Wenda, a 400m hur­dler, is rock­hard proof. De­spite be­ing smaller than the av­er­age hur­dler (they’re usu­ally tall with long legs), Wenda dom­i­nates. This year alone, she’s col­lected sev­eral gold medals and took home bronze at the Com­mon­wealth Games. Aside from that – and her se­ri­ous #fit­spo – she’s on a mis­sion to set an ex­am­ple for oth­ers. “I have a heart on fire to make a dif­fer­ence in the world through my achieve­ments and tal­ent, so in a way it is about way more than win­ning alone,” she says. @wen­danel27
