Briefly.co.za gathered that Refiloe is happy to be sponsored by Nike as she feels the brand is a big supporter of women in sport.
She also admitted she always wanted Nike as a kid, but her parents could never afford it.
Nike was all I saw growing up, and not even once did my parents have money to buy me Nike or any other brand.
Nike has been a big supporter of women in sport over the years and they have empowered women like Caster Semenya and Kgothatso Montjane. I feel honoured and privileged to be associated with a big brand like Nike who support women in sport.
Well, look at you now, girl! We're so proud.
