Global (10 April 2024) — Talented youngster, and up and coming judo champ, Oabile Molefe has made Krugersdorp High and the South African judo community very proud after he earned a glittering achievement at the 2024 Commonwealth Judo Championships!

Held in Pembroke, Malta from early in April, the Commonwealth Judo Championships saw judo champ after judo champ step up to the competition with the hopes to represent their home nations, schools and training academies in full glory.

Oabile competed in the U18 division after being selected by Judo South Africa to represent our country in the prestigious event, and claimed gold for his efforts; making him the judo champ in his age and weight group, as KJK Judo Club shared.
