You won’t find a better definition of #TeamCFASF breakout athlete than the story of Youngest performing #TeamCFASF female athlete Peace Lekwot.
There’s hardly anyone who would debate that, as there are so many arguments and facts to defend Peace’s instantaneous way to stardom in just a short period of time.
The State Champion dominated her age category (U-15) at the 2020 Faith Academy Inter Houses Sports which started from October (2019) to February (2020), thereby winning the MicroManna Limited and Golden Penny Food Most Valuable Athlete of the year, making it a back-to-back success three years in a row.
Ordinarily, one would expect a burnout from an athlete under the age category (U-15) whose body has been subjected to a lot of competitions that started since October but in the case of Peace Lekwot it is a different case always showing she is ready for more.
