Black Excellence at RIO 2016

I’ve been watching the Olympics my whole life probably since Seoul1988 (I was 3) but  Sydney 2000 has stuck with me with Cathy Freeman making history by being the first Aborigine to win gold in 400 metres in her home country.  This being Women’s month I would love to celebrate the Women breaking down the sporting barriers. 

I’ve watched #RIO2016 with same excitement as always and seen once again significant history been made. I yelled at the screen, celebrated when my own country Zimbabwe ‘s Mighty Warriors scored their first ever goal at the Olympics against Germany. This was the first time any Zimbabwean soccer team had made to the Olympics (men or women).

Delightful peep of the month: May’16

Meet Simphiwe Mathebula an electrical design Technician by profession. Fitness and health is her passion, it is the best lifestyle choice she has ever made.  Her goal is to motivate more people to see the good that is in this lifestyle, one day at a time.


How did you get into fitness?
I have always been a fitness fanatic since high school. I used to participate in sports and that made me cope well with school. I joined gym in September 2013, that time I was not that consistent, didn’t understand nutrition or the overall concept of how I needed to train to achieve my fitness goals. I gave myself the responsibility to learn and explore more and more and as they say the rest is history.

Event: Writers Bloc @ Skoobs

Once a month my favourite book store Skoobs holds the writers bloc where poets come together and share their craft. I found this event on Facebook yesterday and decided to attend. I had never been to a poetry reading session before so I wasn’t sure what to expect.  It’s great to see Skoobs giving young people the platform to bring their poetry, art , music and books. The writer’s bloc was organised by Calen who circulated the bookstore welcoming everyone before the show started. The topic was DREAMS.
