“Achieve your goals in a way that people think you don’t have the right technique”
Christopher Moleya is from Limpopo province and now studies and trains in Pretoria.
Together with his training partner Mpho Links, Christopher is still a novice, but he has got the talent to become a real champion.
In term of raw talent, Moleya is comparable to the famous South African high jumper Jacques Freitag.
Moleya, a boarder at Prestige College in Hammanskraal, joined Badenhorst's training group at Tuks early in 2015 with a best of 2.09m at the Athletic Gauteng Championships in March 2015.
At the SA Championships in Stellenbosch he took bronze with 2.15m and he reconfirmed the same height at the SA Open Championships in Potchefstroom.
Selected for the Africa Youth Championships in Brazzaville, Congo in September 2015, he came back with a bronze medal and a new Personal best of 2.22 m.
