Transitioning from mainstream to home school and eventually to a private school in Krugersdorp, Matt faced difficulties but found his calling in athletics under the mentorship of coach Peter Jacobs. His move to Reddford in Grade 10, supported by a sports sponsorship, marked a turning point, and with professional coaching, Matt's academic and athletic performance soared. Now, having represented South Africa in Zambia and securing notable achievements, Matt is poised to pursue a professional athletic career, aiming for the SA under-23 and open teams, with aspirations to compete in the 2028 Olympics.
