The youngster's dream remained alive after Wood Panthers reignited their interest late last year. Speaking at the send off ceremony on Wednesday, a representative from Basadi Bomme, a group that advocates for women participation in sports, Tebogo Lebotse-Sebego hoped that David's move would encourage a lot more young athletes to take up sport as a career.
