Muzi Yeni has his Siya moment

MUZI YENI has some excellent rides at Flamingo Park today.

You could fit two Muzis Yenis into one Siya Kolisi. The Springbok captain – an instant worldwide celebrity – is 1.88m tall (six foot two inches) and weighs 105kg. The jockey – less well-known internationally but a huge fan favourite at home – is 1.4m (four foot seven) and tips the scale at less than 49kg. These two sporting superstars are rather different, but they have one important thing in common: they are the first black captains of a South African team taking on the world.
