Sport star

National long jumper Ruswahl Samaai, left, received the top accolade when the University of Johannesburg sports awards gala function was held at the Johannesburg Country Club last week. Ruswahl, who hails from Paarl, won the Sportsman of the Year award for the second year in a row, after claiming a bronze medal at the IAAF World Championships in London in August, with a leap of 8.35 metres. After representing South Africa in the Olympic Games last year, Ruswahl, a third-year transportation management student, again caught the eye in international competition this season.
