Six weeks ago Mbulaeni Mulaudzi was ‘fed up’. Fed up that he had been unable to recover his form after illness and injuries had knocked him off his stride in his build up towards the World Championships here. So he packed his bags, left Europe, and returned home to South Africa.
Shy, astute, dangerous and shrewd; the leopard is among South Africa's most perilous creatures. Mbulaeni Mulaudzi may not be overly bashful, but he is gently soft-spoken, cunning on the track, and after capping his first indoor season with a world indoor title, he clearly displayed that he's as dangerous in a race as a coy leopard can be in the wild.
