Zenéy van der Walt is a talented 22-year-old South African from Gauteng, an Olympic athlete specialising in 400 meters hurdles.
She has won gold medals at the 2017 World U18 Championships in Nairobi, Kenya and the 2018 World U18 Championships in Tampere, Finland. In 2019, she won a silver medal at the Universiade in Naples, Italy. More recently, in 2022, she won gold in the African Championships in Port Louis, Mauritius.
At the start of August she participated in the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games in the UK, where she produced a storming finish to snatch the women's 400m hurdles bronze medal. (See the youtube link for her fantastic run).
South African athletes face challenges with raising financial support compared to their fellow international participants. Zenéy has remained dedicated to following her athletic dream and is working very hard towards achieving the goals set out for herself.
With financial support, Zenéy can focus more full-time on her training for the 2023 World Athletic Championship hosted in Budapest, Hungary and the 2024 Summer Olympic Games hosted in Paris, France.
The much-needed funding will support her access to:
- Specialised coaching in South Africa.
- Pay for the expensive travel costs of international competitions as well as pay for the travel costs of her coach.
- Pay for a focused dietary and nutritional support.
Her goal is ultimately to win the 2024 Olympics 400 meters hurdles and proudly fly the South African flag.
Let's stand together and raise funding to support this talented young athlete with her dream and goal to get to the Olympics in 2024. Your private contribution and sponsorship is highly appreciated. Thank you.
