SHONA-LEAH WESTON BIOGRAPHY.

GROWING UP, ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS REPRESENT MY COUNTRY IN THE HOPES THAT ONE DAY I WOULD GET THE HONOUR TO MEET MR. NELSON MANDELA. I HAD A FULL SCHEDULE FROM BEFORE I CAN REMEMBER. I WOULD START WITH MY SCHOOL SPORT AND CARRY ON INTO THE EVENING WITH MY 2ND JUDO SESSION FOR THE DAY. IT DIDNT MATTER WHAT SPORT WAS ON OFFER, WHETHER IT WAS ONLY ME IN THE BOYS TEAMS OR NOT, NOTHING COULD HOLD MY COMPETITIVE NATURE BACK. 

 

I STARTED EXCELLING IN MY JUDO AT THE AGE OF 8, REPRESENTING MY COUNTRY AND WINNING GOLD. MY JUDO CAREER BEGAN TO BLOOM, AND FORTUNATELY I WAS ABLE TO SEE THE WORLD WITH A PROTEA ON MY CHEST. BY THE END OF MY SCHOOL CAREER, I HAD REPRESENTED MY COUNTRY FOR JUDO; AND MY PROVINCE FOR JUDO, NETBALL, HOCKEY AND BASKETBALL. I WAS ALSO THE YOUNGEST(14) SCHOLAR TO EVER PLAY FOR MY 1ST TEAM IN BASKETBALL, NETBALL AND INDOOR HOCKEY. 

 

AFTER SCHOOL I DECIDED TO HEAD UP TO PRETORIA’S HPC TO CONTINUE WITH MY JUDO. I WAS STILL A JUNIOR AND REPRESENTED MY COUNTRY AT THE COMMONWEALTH CHAMPIONSHIPS. BRINGING HOME A SILVER. I ALSO COMPETED IN THE SENIOR DIVISION BUT IT WAS NOT LONG AFTER THAT WHEN I SPOTTED WOMENS RUGBY 7S. AFTER A BIT OF TRAINING, MY HEART WAS SOLD. I DECIDED TO RETIRE FROM JUDO AFTER 13 YEARS, AND CHALLENGE MYSELF TO MAKING THE SPRINGBOK TEAM. 6 MONTHS INTO MY RUGBY CAREER, I WAS CALLED UP FOR THE U20 WOMENS RUGBY TEAM, FOLLOWING THAT I WAS THEN CALLED UP INTO THE SENIORS 7S RUGBY TEAM.

 

DURING MY RUGBY CAREER, I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY IN THE 2014 WOMENS RUGBY WORLD CUP, AS WELL AS IN THE WORLD CIRCUIT FOR THE 7S. ALTHOUGH MY RUGBY DAYS ARE COMING TO AN END. MY PASSION FOR SPORT IS STILL FIRING. MY FOCUS NOW IS TO REMAIN FIT AND STRONG FOR WHATEVER NEW CHALLENGES AWAITS, AND TO TRAIN ALL THE PRIME ATHLETES I CAN.
