Manyonga wins Regional Annual Sports Awards Sportsman of the Year

World and Commonwealth long jump champion Luvo Manyonga was awarded Sportsman of the Year at the African Union Sports Council (AUSC) Region 5 Regional Annual Sport Awards (RASA) which took place on Saturday.

Region 5 of the AUSC is represented by the following countries: Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

This tops a good few weeks for Manyonga who set a world lead of 8.56m in the Shanghai leg of the Diamond League at the beginning of May and then went on to win the Taiwan Athletics Open in Taipei over the weekend in a new championship record of 8.40m.
