Kgothatso Montjane

Wheelchair tennis player

This 22-year-old from Seshego in Limpopo is an amazing wheelchair tennis player. Kgothatso Montjane, who had her leg amputated in 1999 because of an infection, is ranked number one in the country and number 50 in the world. Montjane's solid and accurate shots � and her scintillating speed on the court � makes wheelchair tennis look easy to play. She is physically strong and can move her wheelchair far better than any other local female opponents. She made a clean sweep of all the tournaments across the country between 2005 and 2006. Last year she earned a wild card entry into the 2008 Paralympics in Beijing. � Lucky Sindane
