Totalsports celebrates women in sport this August. Hear their stories of perseverance, commitment to overcome obstacles and ultimately influencing others to start their own sporting journeys.

Tasneem beat depression by taking to the streets to run. She’s now an ultra-marathon athlete.

Thalea is the captain of the TUKS women’s football team and is breaking boundaries in a stereotypically male sport.

Boiphelo realised her own power by losing 30kg’s through exercise and healthy eating. She’s changed the way she lives and now helps others achieve their health goals.

Totalsports believes that sports changes lives. Join the celebration @ www.totalsports.co.za.

TASNEEM PATEL

What’s Your Sport Tasneem?

I am a long-distanceultra-marathon runner. I enjoy how long-distance running challenges me and how it brings out the tougher side of me, both mentally and physically.

What Has Sport Done for You?

Running has changed my life. It’s given me confidence and taught me how important my health is. Coming from a journey of fighting depression, it has taught me to live every day to the fullest. Running has not only changed my life but it’s brought a whole different perspective to other people seeing what I’ve done. I love how I’ve motivated others to start doing different sports and set their own goals. People now come to me for advice. That’s what gets me going – knowing I can help others. Running motivates me and I enjoy giving back to other people and motivating them by showing them what I can do.

What’s Your Message to Other Women?

My message to other women in sport is if you have a goal, go for it, put your mind to it, don’t give up on what you want to achieve. People say they don’t have time. Make time, put yourself first, set that goal and give it your best.
