Dlamini is a 22 year old cyclist who recently won the King Of The Mountain Competition becoming the first black South African to achieve this. The competition was held in Australia – Dlamini was representing Team Dimension Data.

The young cyclist faced stiff competition in this weeks Sport Star* from the likes of Lungi Ngidi who had a brilliant debut for the Proteas picking up 6 wickets for 39 runs and Bongiwe Msomi SA Netball captain, who had a brilliant outing versus Australia at the Ellis Park Arena.
