Two explosive performances in the 100m and 200m sprints during last month’s schools’ inter-zonal athletics meeting at the Kings Park athletics track, earned the 13-year-old his KZN colours. He won both races.
Laban will turn out for the KZN team at the inter-provincial championships in Potchefstroom on November 24.
His impressive showing each year at Clayridge Primary School’s athletics meetings and then at the zone competitions was confirmation of his potential as a sprinter.
“I have won 20 competitions. Inter-school, inter-zone, Pinetown district and KwaZulu-Natal champs,” said Laban.
