As spring season is upon us we took time to speak to the South African record holder in the 200 metres with a time of 19.69 seconds none other than son of the soil Clarence Munyai.

We asked asked Clarence to tell us about his upbringing?

“Many people don’t know that I was born twin, I have  twin brother, we identical twins, my mom says he older than me but I wouldn’t know how she would have known because we look the same.” said a defiant Clarence “My parents are originally from Limpopo, I speak Tshivenda and I grew up with my parents and two older sisters in Muldersdrifts with my brother.”

“It was kind of tough for us growing up because as you know we black people don’t have the advantages that most people have, you know we come from disadvantaged backgrounds and we try and have to make it from those backgrounds to success.”

We asked Clarence how of a role his parents played in moulding him as a record holder?

“My parents played a huge role in the upbringing of my family because they been there for everything, they’ve always supported us and I would say my family as a whole is sporty because my sister plays national hockey when she was still in high school and we did track and field.
