The University Sport department has appealed to female students to join the sporting codes the department is offering. Speaking on MUT Radio yesterday, Nomkhosi Ndlovu of the Sport department said they would like to see large numbers of female students taking part in sporting codes like netball, hockey, karate, bodybuilding, female soccer, and many more. The new players will be part of the illustrious history of the University’s sport.

Ndlovu listed some of the major achievements by the University’s female players. Londi Zondi went to Japan for a karate tournament. Some of the female players have provincial and national colours.

Earlier in the week, MUT Bodybuilding Coach and competitor, Nothando Magwaza, invited women to join the sport. Also speaking on MUT Radio, the Advanced Human Resources Management student said there were many benefits in the sport. It keeps you fit and out of trouble, Magwaza said. She also dispelled all the myths about Body Building being a manly sport. She said the limitations said about women taking part in the sport were “artificial”.

Magwaza also added that bodybuilding was “not as expensive as people think. Even students can afford it”.
