Born and raised in Benoni, Prinsloo first developed an interest in coaching while he was in high school, and he went on to launch his professional career in Kempton Park in 2007. Though he has worked with multiple elite athletes over the last 13 years, however, it has been his success with Akani Simbine which has established Prinsloo as one of the most respected track coaches in the country.
He still works with a variety of athletes across all levels and age groups, but Prinsloo’s contribution to Simbine’s career has made him world renowned, having played a crucial role in lifting Africa’s fastest man to the highest echelons of international sprinting.
