Metawarira, the father of the former Zimbabwean rugby player Tendai Beast in South Africa, said he is satisfied with his son’s achievements and he is not surprised because the beast has always been a go-getter.
Beast’s father Felix who is also an athlete spoke to the publication and said:
For Tendai it was always like that. He is a goal-getter ever since he was growing up and I am happy that he has managed to reach this far.
We are grateful that he has left a mark which many athletes would emulate for decades to come. I have always encouraged him but at times he is someone who works hard in everything he does.
You know from the humble beginnings he persevered and at times when you saw him putting a lot of effort it was unbelievable from the normal eye, but he would do that. At times when he invited us to watch some of his matches, you would see that he is after results and I vividly remember some two games which they lost whilst we were there and he was so dejected you could see that
Mtawarira also spoke about his other children besides Tendai and said:
We are humbled and this goes to all the family as you know we are sports personalities as I am an ardent tennis player and (Tendai’s younger brother) Raymond was a keen rugby player before injuries ended his career while my daughter Lisa pursued education and is now based in Canada.
Tendai always talked about leaving a legacy as he grew up and now I am starting to believe. I am grateful that the moment he said he wanted to pursue sport we never stood in his way but we supported him in every moment
Last week, Beast was named one of the world’s best rugby players between 2010 and 2020 and he was part of the team that won the rugby world cup last year.
