- Darryn Binder has followed in his brother's footstep and won his first race, the Moto3 GP in Catalan
- Last month, his brother Brad won the MotoGP race in the Czech Republic and made history in the process
- It looks as if racing is in the brother's blood and Darryn has huge potential as his career is just starting
Darryn Binder has followed in his brother's footsteps. Brad Binder is a MotoGP phenomenon and it looks like Darryn will be as well.
The 22-year-old celebrated his first Moto3 win after leaving his opponents behind on the track as he raced across the finish line in style in Catalan.
He started the race in 9th position, an unlikely place to win a race from but soon astounded the audience with his skill, staying with the leading pack and taking the lead in the final lap, making for a dramatic win.
Brad was all over the new when he won his first MotoGP race in the Czech Republic.
"The feeling is absolutely indescribable," Darryn said after winning.
"Barcelona is a special place for me because I took my first ever world championship point here back in 2016."
"To get my first victory here is pretty sick too. I've been threatening for a long time and just and just haven't made it possible."
"I'm just over the moon. To my parents back home, thank you, I love you guys a lot and I'll see you soon."
South Africans took to social media to celebrate the astounding victory, the second South Africa racer to make the country proud in as many months.
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that it was a proud moment for South Africa as our very own Wade van Niekerk took first place in the international race event that took place in Switzerland. Wade, who was running in lane four, made it to first place at 45.58s in the 400m race.
The South African runner and previous world record breaker got in swiftly ahead of Netherland's Joachem Dobberlands, who came in at 45.78s in second place. Karel Zwelskski from Poland came in at the third spot at 46.03s on the clock.
Wade's first international win comes after failing to compete in an Italy race due to a harrowing positive coronavirus test. While the outcome of the test stopped him from attending the competition, his symptoms remained asymptomatic.
In other Briefly.co.za sports news, Kaizer Chiefs fans seem to be welcoming the prospect of having Doctor - otherwise affectionately called Doc Khumalo - onto the team's newly-put-together coaching team.
The legendary footballer is both a former midfielder for the team and South Africa's Bafana Bafana player. After his blooming career as a player, Doctor Khumalo excelled in his role as coach assistant for SuperSport United alongside coach Stuart Baxter.
The two dominated the domestic league between the years 2012 to 2015. The football legend then took a short break from his football career, distancing himself from the sport after finishing work with Baroka FC in 2018. His fans however seemingly did not stop seeing his greatness and are now welcoming him to assist Kaizer Chiefs to make a come-back from their PSL loss.
