This boy is on fire

Spinning in his blood

12 September 2019 | Sports

Yolanda Nel With two older brothers that are well-known in the spinning community, it is no wonder their younger brother is following in their footsteps.
Six-year-old Joleon Nambahu first began the art of spinning last year. According to his father, Joel, his older brothers got young Joleon involved in this motorsport. “Wamboeseun and Hulk, aged 18 and 13, are well known in the motorsport community and it is no surprise that my youngest will follow in their footsteps,” he said.
“It also shows that spinning is not only for adults and that children can become involved,” he added.
Joel believes that his son is inspiring other youngsters to become involved in the sport. “It is a great hobby and keeps children off the streets. And in our community it is very important to give children something to keep them occupied.”
Joleon performs in the stunt and in-car category, and his favourite stunt is called “The Suicide”. He enjoys spinning in Swakopmund the most, while his favourite spinners are Vankies and older brother Wamboeseun.
See Joleon live and full of action at the next spinning event, hosted by Windhoek Spin City Club, on 25 September. In October he plans on participating in Swakopmund and in November he will travel to Heloa Nafidi for a big championship taking place there.
