Fighting for his Olympic dream

Dzemil Muric has set his sights on the 2018 youth olympics.

North coast national Karate South Africa (KSA) 2017 champ, Dzemil Muric has set his sights on Olympic gold for the forthcoming 2018 Youth Olympics being hosted in Argentina.

Muric, an Ashton International College pupil, destroyed all opposition at last week’s Karate SA nationals in Cape Town to be crowned national champion.

“I am aiming for an Olympic gold at the World Youth Olympics 2018,” said the 18-year-old karate Protea.

Proteas coach Brando Pillay, who mentors and coaches the karate superstar, was full of praise for his prodigy.

“Dzemil is destined for the Olympic stage, beyond doubt. Moreover he needs to be ranked number one on the African continent to be considered for the Olympics 2018,” said Pillay.

President of KSA, Sonny Pillay Hanshi was very encouraged by team KZN’s performance at the nationals and said that if champions such as Muric can continue working hard at their karate, they will certainly be serious contenders to represent team KSA at the Olympics.

“Muric, who regularly practices his karate at the SKISA dojo in the Tongaat sports centre, can serve as role models for today’s youth, many of whom who seem to be lost to juvenile delinquency, drug and alcohol abuse.”
