Outstanding Zimbabwe’s Motorcross champion Tanyaradzwa Muzinda has been nominated for United States of America’s Time Magazine Nickelodeon Kid Of The Year 2020 award.

Born in Harare, Zimbabwe’s most populous city, she says she broke the news saying she is honoured.

“I am honoured to have made shortlist for Nickelodeon Kid Of The Year 2020 with Time Magazine, even if l don’t win this Award being alongside these incredible kids gives me hope for a better future. Celebrating kids around the world who are inspiring in their communities,” she wrote.

She is also an honorary ambassador of the European Union to Zimbabwe for Youth, Gender, Sports and Development.

Nickelodeon and Time launched the “Kid of the Year” honour, a year-long effort that includes a TV special simulcast on both Nickelodeon and CBS, each part of ViacomCBS. Trevor Noah, the host of “The Daily Show” on the company’s Comedy Central, will host the proceedings, which will recognize five young people judged to be making a positive impact in their communities.

Tanya was inspired by her father, who is also a former biker,

“My dad used to ride motorbikes in the past so I got the motivation for Motocross from him,” she told CNN.
It is perhaps an unusual sport for a five-year-old to take up, given the potential risk of serious injury, something that Muzinda has not escaped.
In 2017, she fell off a 100 feet long jump, hurting her hip, while practising for a race.
“I was not able to walk properly for a few months. It also affected my back, so I have back problems that I have to work on,” she said.-Harare Live/CNN
