Makanaka Mawere of Hellenic Academy is our Absolute Athlete of the Week for this week. Mawere enjoyed an impressive run in the rain on Friday at the Arundel Cross Country Invitational finishing first in the U15 girls race. The Hellenic junior who graduated from Bishopslea last year was running in her first official high school cross-country meet.
Mawere broke the U13 record at Gateway Interschools Cross Country meet in 2016 and was the girl to beat in the primary schools cross-country circuit. Also a national swimmer, Mawere will be swimming at the CANA Championships in two weeks time.
Well done Makanaka.
