First of all I thank God for the talent He gave me and I'm enjoying being based here in SA and I’m feeling at home around the people I’m training with. It’s a strong family of athletes who all have a good successful vision… and to be coached by Jean Verster who is more than a coach, it’s a motivation… he is a father to us.”

About Me


I started running when I was 13 years old and also spent 5 years at the University of Nebraska in the USA and a few years on the European circuit.

As I have spent most of my life running, and that with some of the best runners in the world, I have build a solid knowledge of getting someone to run at there best. Some of the runners I have trained include Hezekiel Sepeng who became a Commonwealth Games and Olympic Games Silver Medallist. Nijel Amos who is ranked number 1 in the world for 800m in 2014 is the most well known athlete I coach. I also coach Andre Olivier who has run 1:44 for the 800m and Elroy Gelant a 13:15 5000m runner who also ran 21,1km in 61 min.

I also am manager of the High Performance Institute of Sport (HPI) which is located on the Potchefstroom South Africa.
