About

The shot put and discus specialist from Pretoria is a double world record holder. Kruger was born with a stroke and has cerebral palsy, which puts her in the F38 class. “Without sport, I’d be lying in bed all day,” she says. Her favourite quote is “Do your best and God will do the rest,” and her inspiration is Nicola McDermott-Olyslagers. “She is such a role model. Her hard work and dedication motivates me to work even harder. What inspires me most is her relationship with God.”
