“I am an avid footballer, it’s been my favourite sport ever since I was a child. I was gutted that I couldn’t make it as a pro. I channeled my passion into giving back to the youth as I was involved in youth work in my church. I organised regular keep fit sessions and even got more senior citizens to join. My passion for sports has always been tied in to my faith in God.

As a Christian I recognise that I have been entrusted with my body by God to do good and enrich my community with deeds of God’s love. I cannot do so if I abuse my body. Keeping fit by playing football, jogging, and badminton enables me to keep my body in good shape so I can show God’s love in my community.

Self-discipline and self control are biblical disciplines that have helped me greatly in sport especially as one who used to easily lose my temper on the pitch. I have learnt to rein in myself and I am now as cool as a cucumber all from deepening my faith in God and applying it to physical activity.

I gave up sports for almost 8 months due to a knee injury and started putting on weight. Just as I began light training the COVID nightmare plagued the globe. I have taken up jogging and skipping in the mean time to maintain my weight. However I am very eager to get back on the pitch again so I can race back to full fitness.

Stay healthy and look after your body, it is what you need to enjoy life on this earth.”
