We will give her all the necessary support as she settles into her new role and we believe she has the capacity to deliver without any doubt.
That she is a celebrated member of the Athletics Commission of the IOC speaks volumes of her pedigree as an athlete, leader and an inspiration to many women and all athletes in Zimbabwe and beyond.
Her international connections with the sporting world means a positive growth projection for sport as a whole in the country. As for Zifa, we pray for her almighty success and development of women’s football across the 10 provinces of the country. Our girls have been Cosafa champions and have taken part in the Africa Women Cup of Nations and Olympic Games, what more can they achieve with a mother and inspiring figure like you Kirsty?
A whole lot more, we believe.
