Mercedes Benz and Laureus Sport for Good Foundation invited 20 of our Boxgirls and their coaches to meet with the National Rugby team of South Africa, the Springboks. First our girls could experience the history and spirit of South African Rugby in the Springbok Museum. After our girls had the chance to meet Jean de Villiers, Morné du Plessis, Chiliboy Ralepelle and the other national team members. They showed us some of their training units and we showed them some basic boxing skills and shared what it is like to be a Boxgirl.
We are proud that we have been invited to the event. It was a great sport- interchange and an inspiration to our girls.
Thank you to the Springboks, Laureus Sport for Good Foundation and Mercedes Benz South Africa for making this possible!
