JOHANNESBURG - Taking another major leap in his career, Luvo Manyonga will return to the nest, moving from Pretoria to Port Elizabeth to be closer to his family.
The world long-jump gold medallist will leave the University of Pretoria where he had found a new lease on his career since returning to the sport at the beginning of 2016.
Manyonga has the world title and the Olympic silver medal behind his name since he joined the University of Pretoria High-Performance Centre towards the end of 2015.
The long-jump sensation’s agent, Lee-Roy Newton, said the move meant Manyonga would be closer to the comfort and stability his family provides.
“He’s made the decision to move down to Port Elizabeth to change his training environment and to be closer to his family down there,” Newton said.
