A leap of power

Growing up, Tsoseletso ‘Tsosi’ Magang initially made her name as one of Botswana’s best long-jumpers.

The Kang native then made the leap from the pit to volleyball, where she once again excelled, establishing herself as one of the country’s greatest ever players.

When her playing days came to an end, Magang stuck with sport and pursued a career behind the scenes.

Last year, as part of the International Working Group on Women in Sport’s (IWG) build up to their recently ended World Conference, she was given a platform to host monthly open discussions.

Inducted into the Botswana National Sport Commission (BNSC) Hall of Fame in 2016, Magang is currently the Vice Chairperson of the Women and Sport Botswana (WASBO) movement and a qualified IOC National Course Director.

She has held various leadership positions within the country’s sporting structures, including the Botswana Volleyball Federation (BVF) Presidency, Women and Sport publicity secretary and coach of Kutlwano volleyball men’s team.
