Local athletics coach has another award

Boikie Gama, a teacher by profession, was left speechless after his efforts and hard work were recognised when he won the Legend Coach of the Year 2021.

This award-winning local athletics coach has bagged another award in the Mpumalanga Sports Awards last Saturday.

Boikie Gama, a teacher by profession, was left speechless after his efforts and hard work were recognised when he won the Legend Coach of the Year 2021.

“I never really thought I would win the award. I was taken by surprise. Being nominated on its own meant a lot to me, but to come out on top left me speechless and proud of myself. This is proof that I am doing a great job and it is encouragement for me to keep pushing,” he said.

Gama previously won the district coach of the year 2017 and the Mpumalanga coach of the year, to name a few. He explained that winning the award would open more doors for the project he is currently working on.

“This is an eye-opener award for me. It will help me to get exposure for the project I am also running for young black girls’ development and training. My project is running but not fully supported, but with this award, people are now going to know about it.”
