Members of The Soweto Canoe And Recreation Club (SCARC) were instantly inspired by the remarkable achievement of Sbonelo Zondi. The 24-year-old development paddler sprung a surprise on the opening day of the Dusi Canoe Marathon. Not only did he beat pre-race favourite Andy Birkett to win the first stage but he did it in a new record, 39 seconds faster than the previous best.
Sbonele was already a hero in the hearts of SCARC. Since 2003, SCARC has been teaching underprivileged Soweto kids how to swim, participate in water sports, develop crucial life skills and become economically active. Sbonele has been helping by mentoring and training the team even as recently as December.
ADreach CEO and SCARC Founder, Brad Fisher, was clearly impressed with Sbonele's record-breaking day: "It's truly rewarding to see this humble, gifted young man fullfill the potential we all saw in him. He's been a role model in and out of the water for SCARC. He is an ambassador for South African sport. And on behalf of the team we wish him the very best."
