Springbok Women’s Captain, Babalwa Latsha, has been putting in the hard work behind closed doors as she looks to remain fit during this uncertain period as we face the global Coronavirus pandemic.

Latsha returned to South Africa from Spain over a week ago to be closer to her family and is currently in her hometown of Khayelitsha in Cape Town.

She says that her journey coming home was a different experience as various precautions were taken for health reasons.

“My travelling experience in such an uncertain time was rather scary,” Latsha pointed out in a video sent to the gsport Team.

“I had flights delayed and I had to have my temperature taken in Johannesburg.

“The precautionary measures that were implemented at airports were that we had to distance ourselves by keeping a distance of one metre or more, especially standing in queues, and we had to have our faces covered.”

“I was missing my family very much and I am very happy to be with them.”- Springbok Women’s captain, Babalwa Latsha.

The rugby player points out that she is happy to be home as she feels at ease around her loved ones.

“I was extremely happy to be at home. It gave me a sense of relief.

“I was missing my family very much and I am very happy to be with them.”

All sporting events have been postponed until further notice leaving Latsha without competitive matches to partake in. However, she isn’t lazing around and taking things easy.

“I am training at home, following a home workout and good diet programme.

“I plan to keep my fitness levels up by continuing to train every day because it is our responsibility as athletes to make sure that our bodies are in tip-top condition.”

She also shared some of her workout sessions on her Twitter account (@BabalwaLatsha), even using her sister as gym equipment.
