Congratulations  - our Walkers steal the limelight again !      
Ranked Athlete Spotlight - Lesley van Buuren, RSA
Masters Race Walking lured Lesley in 2004 when she joined a club so she could exercise with others.  Being exposed to the race walking technique for the first time encouraged Lesley to try the sport herself and she switched clubs in 2007 in order to be mentored and coached by the great Barbara Nell. 10 Gold and 3 Silver Medals in 3 WMA Championships plus many other accomplishments later, Lesley is now an inspiration to many herself (even if she inspires young athletes because they do not want to be beaten by an "old lady"). She also shares her enthusiasm and passion with other masters athletes and while developing young walkers. Lesley is a fixture in the World Masters Rankings but, much more importantly, she is a fixture in Masters Athletics - Thank you Lesley!
