Boxing Gogo's gogo

We met Gogo Zodwa at the Cosmo City recreational center, she radiated joy and excitement! Her biggest dream was to see the ocean so people made it happen!


Gogo Zodwa is a member of the elderly boxing programme at the A-Team Gym in Cosmo City. Back in April we shared the story of the A-Team Boxing Gogo’s, this included the story about Gogo Zodwa. She is well into her 80’s and absolutely loves boxing. She has been going to the gym for nearly 2 years.

“Boxing is my favourite…I can just punch and punch for hours! Then at night if my husband rolls over I punch him by mistake ” She laughs a most delightful laugh.” I sleep so well after exercising at the gym!

One of the things Gogo mentioned was that she had never seen the ocean or been to the beach in her entire life. It was her biggest dream! Followers of the I Have A Name Facebook page made it happen!

The radio station Hot 91.9 FM got involved. They had Claude, the owner of the A-Team gym and Gogo on the radio and sponsored a seaside trip for her!

Gogo was treated like an absolute queen! She was chauffeured around and slept on a massive bed! But the moment she was there for, seeing the sea for the first time, that was the most moving moment of all!

Gogo was filled with sheer joy and excitement. Without hesitating she walked over to the waters edge, got down on her knees and touched the ocean for the first time in her life!
