by | Oct 30, 2021

2021 gsport Coach of the Year and SA Women’s Water Polo team head coach, Delaine Mentoor, has been recognised by the Nelson Mandela University for her global success in 2021.

She is one of a host of NMU representatives recognised for their success on the global stage in 2021, including Erin Harty (Representative – Women’s U20 Water Polo, FINA World Junior Champs); Jennifer Kingwill (Jumps Coach – Athletics, Tokyo Olympics) and Meghan Maartens (Representative – Water Polo, Tokyo Olympics)

Mentoor, who is also NMU’s women’s water polo team head coach and oversees the water polo program, told gsport: “It is always an honour to receive recognition for your hard work and achievements and it is especially special to be recognised by Nelson Mandela University.”

Mentoor made headlines back in August when she beat off stiff competition to win the Coach of the Year award at the Momentum gsport Awards after coaching South Africa to a historic Olympic qualification, as they became the first ever women’s water polo team from Africa to participate at the prestigious event.
