A need for speed

01 June
At the 2022 South African Junior Athletics Championships, it took just 11 seconds for a young woman from the Eastern Cape to make a global impact on the track. She smashed the national record for the 100-metre sprint and also set a new under-18 record for the 200-metres (which had remained unbroken for exactly 40 years), Viwe Jingqi is now the fastest under-18 female in the world. Now, the 17-year-old sprinter is aiming to represent South Africa at the next Olympic Games and bring home the medals.
