Chabata bounces back

Middle and long distance runner, Lovemore Chabata, has resumed light training, following a right tendon injury he sustained about three months ago. “I have been nursing an injury that I suffered during training back in April. I am happy with the progress I have made so far,” said Chabata.

“I am responding very well to the treatment and I am convinced that I will be entering competitions in the coming month. It has been a hard and sad journey for me, but with prayers and belief, I am happy to have finally pulled through.”

Chabata called upon Ministry of Sports to help unearth hidden talent by holding talent development and identification programmes that involved grassroots, for the development of the sport’s future.

“The ministry needs to hold more talent identification programmes nationwide, like what Dairyboard used to do at growth points. Schools are no longer competing as seriously as they used to do.

“We also need athletics academies in all provinces, while lack of sponsorship, which remains our biggest problem, should also be tackled if more youngsters are to be encouraged to try a life in athletics.”
