Sasol, in conjunction with SAFA, unveiled #Limitless, an initiative aimed at garnering more support for, and inspiring participation in, women’s football. #Limitless is about shining a spotlight on women’s football and the heroines of the sport. Banyana Banyana Vice-Captain, Refiloe Jane is undoubtedly a heroine of women’s football.
From being a ball girl at her brother’s football games at age 6 to training with Manchester City and Everton to signing for Canberra United in Australia (becoming the first South African, along with Rhoda Mulaudzi, to play in Australia).
Over the past year Limitless has served as an illustration of the powerful and talented individuals selflessly giving of themselves to grow the game. These individuals continue to be used as an illustration of how participation in sport teaches confidence, dedication, determination, and teamwork – lessons that can translate into other areas of individuals’ lives.
Included in the profiling, is numerous Banyana Banyana players, in the aim of positioning them in order to give young girls people to look up to and aspire to. Refiloe Jane’s story is an inspiration to footballers and supporters of football alike.
“Don’t let anyone tell you can’t do it. I can get to any level that I want to get myself to” – Refiloe Jane
