- Basetsana Kumalo has shared an inspiring story about a bad fall she had in 2016
- The businesswoman said the injury she sustained in the fall at her son's school in 2016 had been preventing from running in the mornings
- Bassie finally managed to complete a 10km run four years after injuring her ankle
Basetsana Kumalo got all emotional after she managed to finish a 10km run without feeling any pain in her ankle.
This is because four year ago, doctors told her they didn't think she'd be able to run any more after she injured herself so badly.
The former Miss South Africa-turned-businesswoman took to social media to tell her fans about the 2016 fall that prevented her from "hitting the road" for four years.
In March 2016, the star fell and broke her ankle while at her son's school.
"I slipped and fell at son's school, it was a rainy day. I landed at the back of my head and lost consciousness. My right foot was basically sitting outside of my socket."
She had to have an open reduction surgery following the incident.
"I was in a cast and wheelchair bound and was on crutches after regaining mobility. Doctors said they don't think I'll be able to run any more. I used to run 10km every morning prior to my injury. I had to go for sports rehab. I've been doing yoga and eating well."
Bassie said she tried to run in 2019 but had to stop because of unbearable pain. However, she did not give up.
"With lockdown I decided to have some faith and hit the road, and I did."
She advised her fans:
"Don't give up, faith can move mountains. I ran without feeling any pain. Today I managed to do 10km and you know, it feels good."
Her testimony inspired her peeps.
"What a testimony. To God the greatest physician be the glory for healing you."
"Beyond amazing. All glory to our Almighty God!! Faith will move mountains. Beautiful testimony my friend."
"My goodness, your story is hectic.Thanks for sharing. Glad you're okay."
