Elliot Mujaji back on the track

ZIMBABWE’s first Paralympic gold medalist, Elliot Mujaji will be back on the track when he races against a horse and a car in the 100 metres challenge at the OK Grand Challenge on the 4th of next month.

Mujaji’s OK Grand challenge appearance is set to bring back old memories of his exploits as a professional athlete.

The Zvishavane based former sprinter is known for his exploits at the Sydney 2000 and Athens 2004 Paralympics where he won gold.

He will be hoping to give his legion of fans a glimpse of what he is made of when he competes against a horse in the 100m race at the OK Grand challenge.

The fun race will also see the sprinter competing against a car, a feat only accomplished by another sprinter, Artwell Mandaza in 1984.

“I am being honoured to be the second person in the country to compete in this race after Mandaza’s exploits in 1984 when he competed against a horse when he was fundraising for the 1984 Los Angeles Zimbabwe Olympic team,” said Mujaji.

Meanwhile, the mining town of Zvishavane is set to come alive as the Great Dyke marathon takes centre stage this Saturday with more than 100 athletes from across the country outwitting each other for glory.
