Maryke Kennard continues to smash preconceived ideas

Maryke Kennard continues to smash preconceived ideas

Maryke Kennard made history in 2015 when she was the first ever women to represent a country in a team game,  and to be the captain of such team, at IeSF’s 7th World Championships – Seoul.

If that was enough, Maryke then went on to give the Athlete’s Oath at the start of IeSF’s 7th World Championships,  and when the South African team just missed getting into the group stages, Maryke assisted Reid ‘RAPiD’ Melton shoutcast the event to millions of watchers.

Maryke is thus the first South African to ever have shoutcasted at a world championships.

A weaker person would have settled with these achievements, but, for Maryke, they are just the start.

Maryke is stoo a great sense of character. Although Maryke did a wonderful job of leading the Protea  League of Legends, Maryke stood down as captain to allow fellow team mate, Matthew Smith, take up the  reigns  of  captain.

As a  player, Maryke has been reselected to  represent South Africa  in the eSports Protea Team for IeSF’s 8th World Championships – Jakarta.

It should  be noted that Maryke shall be the only female participant at such world championships.

Such is the stuff that Maryke is made, she is indomitable.
