Ladies and Gentlemen your new Commonwealth Games Champion 400m Muzala Samukonga.
A young man from the heart of Ng’ombe with nothing but a burning passion to succeed. His life will never be the same.
His talent, hardwork and perseverance have brought him to this place. Forever will his name be embedded in our hearts and in the books of history.
For those that may not know, Muzala is also the current African Champion in 400m.
He recently participated at the World Championships in Oregon, USA and faced some of the world’s best athletes yet even then he pushed himself all the way to the Semi finals landing an incredible Personal Best time of 45.02.
Today on that World class stage Muzala picked himself up from the back to beat the English and Barbedos runners with an impressive of 44.66 seconds, a new National record 👏👏
I believe that it really doesn’t matter where you come from. Talent and skills can take you places.
Leave some encouraging words for this 19 year old Champion as we await more medals later tonight.
