Sello Maduma


In his second international event Sello Maduma gave a sterling performance against Seung Gu Kim of South Korea at the Beijing Olympics. Maduma lost 13-14 to Gu Kim who is the world's number one in fencing. But despite all this, his future in the sport is, sadly, bleak. The talented fencer from Mamelodi has missed several international events, which could have helped him grow and possibly win a medal at the Olympics. Maduma doesn't have a sponsor to help him buy the necessary kit and to pay for his international events. He was initially pulled into the sport after a school's exhibition in Mamelodi arranged by Ephraim Mabhena. � Lucky Sindane
