     Tafadzwa Chikomba.


    CHIREDZI – Tafadzwa Chikomba of Malipati High School who scooped a gold medal in triple jump at this year`s Confederation of Schools Sports Association of Southern Africa (COSSASA) games held in Namibia recently is appealing for financial assistance in order to join professional clubs to further his career.
    Chikomba is appealing for support in the form of proper training facilities and sports attire as well as support so that the athlete can join professional clubs to compete at the highest level.
    “As a school we are proud with Tafadzwa’s perfomance at this year`s COSSASA games where he won a gold medal in Under 17 Boys Triple Jump. He jumped 14,81m in Namibia and we are now working to improve on that since he is now going to compete in the U20 category. He needs help since our school does not have proper facilities for triple jump and he also needs a proper attire. He should also join professional clubs so that he can further his talent” said Mapengo.

    Malipati High School athletics coach and Chikomba’s trainer, Mapengo said the school is proud of his performance at the regional schools games. 
    He said Chikomba has motivated other pupils at the school as they are now taking sports seriously. 
    Out of six countries that participated in Namibia, Zimbabwe came first with 11 gold medals, 1 silver and 1 bronze. Namibia came second with 7 gold, 12 silver and 1 bronze medal.
