Némata Nikiéma of Burkina Faso is 16 years old and is currently undertaking sports studies in the municipality of Lavras, in Brazil. From competing in the ISF Gymnasiade in Morocco back in 2018, Némata’s performance brought about the opportunity to study and train in Brazil with the help of a full scholarship.
On 22 May, she participated in the Brazilian National U20 Championships, competing in the 100m sprint and long jump events. Representing Burkina Faso, Némata recorded times of 12.59 and 12.77, and a jumping distance of 5.32m.
Read more about Némata in the January 2021 edition of the ISF Magazine on page 42, with an interview she gave last year about her past experiences and future goals in school sport.
