The history of the productWOMAN COACH
IN 2016 IN RIO, THE SOUTH AFRICAN SPRINTER WAYDE VAN NEIKIRK WON HIS COUNTRY'S FIRST EVER GOLD MEDAL IN ATHLETICS. IN THE 400M FINAL HE CROSSED THE LINE IN A RECORD TIME OF 43.03.
A few seconds after his feat, the cameras focused on his coach, sitting in the stands, who was watching the athlete she had trained since he was young. Ans Botha, 74, brought tears to the eyes of those watching. As she attempted to walk through the crowd to congratulate him, Botha was confronted by officials who did not believe that the white-haired woman was coaching the victorious South African (whose achievement was being overshadowed by Usain Bolt's third consecutive 100m title). It was not until the South African team officials intervened that the couple enjoyed a hug. The champion said about his coach "She is an incredible woman. I'm grateful that I can trust her work, and I think it speaks for itself".
