Maseru Business Machines rewards marathon winners

MASERU – On Tuesday, Maseru Business Machines held a ceremony to reward the winners of last December’s athletes Royal Memorial Half Marathon.
The ceremony was held at the Lesotho Sport and Recreation Commission (LSRC) offices in Maseru and the recipients, all of whom are students, each received a pair of trainers and school shoes.
The lucky winners were Puleng Challa, Moleboheng Tseka and ‘Maserema Mafatle in the girls’ category while in the boys’ section, Mokhotlong based athletes Thebe Semoko, Lekopa Ralenkoane and Mokheseng Sethunya went home with new shoes and trainers.

The Royal Memorial Half Marathon was hosted in December 2018 by the LSRC and Lesotho Amateur Athletics Association in Mantšonyane to celebrate the lives of the late King Moshoeshoe II and Queen Mamohato Bereng Seeiso.

This was not the first time that Maseru Business Machines was supporting the race.
In 2017, Maseru Business Machines also pledged their support to the top three male and female athletes in the Royal Memorial Half Marathon and the 5 kilometre race. The support also consisted of school shoes and training shoes.
Maseru Business Machines manager Tebang Takane said the company was impressed after initially being part of the race in 2017. He said the company was delighted to see young Basotho athletes taking part in sport.
“The touching part of it was to see some of them run bare foot and one of them was a champion in the Region 5 zone,” Takane said.

“We then decided to give school shoes and trainers to the three top male and three top female in the Royal Memorial Half Marathon. By doing this, we are giving back to the community and nourishing the talent in our country,” he said.
Selloane Tšoaeli, who won gold and bronze medals at the African Senior Championships in Nairobi, Kenya, in 2010, thanked Maseru Business Machines for its good work on behalf of the prize recipients.
“It’s not usual for people to recognise the potential of some individuals who participate in the marathons and help them,” Tšoaeli said.
“We are very grateful for these gifts.”
