Limpopo remembers its champion

Mbulaeni Tongai Mulaudzi  was born on the 8th of  September 1980  in Muduluni village in the then Transvaal Province recently called Limpopo Province.  He met his untimely death on the 24th Of October 2014 at a tender age of 34. He  was a South African middle distance runner, and the 2009 world champion in the men's 800 metres. He carried the flag for his native country at the opening ceremony of the 2004 Summer Olympics, where he became an Olympic silver medallist.


His first global medal was a bronze at the 2003 World Championships in Athletics, which came a year after his victory at the 2002 Commonwealth Games. Mulaudzi was the gold medallist at the 2004 IAAF World Indoor Championships and won two further silver medals at the competition in 2006 and 2008. He was runner-up at continental level on three occasions, taking the 800m silver at the African Championships in Athletics in 2000 and at the All-Africa Games in 2003 and 2007.

His personal best for the 800 m was 1:42.86 minutes. He ranked first on time in the 2006 and 2007 seasons, becoming the first Black South African to achieve such.

He was blessed with a blistering finish and a competitive nature during races, when the racing was done and dusted there were times when he seemed almost bemused by the interest in his exploits and was never one to seek the media spotlight and headline hogging. After winning gold at the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester, England flag-bearer Mulaudzi went on to grab silver at the 2004 Athens Olympics in Greece and in 2009 he added the world championship title to his name in Berlin, Germany. After injury finally put paid to his competitive career, true to the person he was, Mulaudzi was ever keen to put back into the sport that brought him so much joy.

At the time of his passing he was involved in various training groups in the Limpopo province. May the son of the soil rest in peace, his contribution will forever remain an inspiration to us and generations to come!!
