When asked about her Italian experience, Coetzee said, “We flew from Joburg to Dubai, then to Italy. I really enjoyed travelling to Italy, and it was an amazing experience, and just the feeling of being there was very nice. My favourite part was tasting all the proper Italian food, like pizza bread and Italian croissants.

“I loved meeting and competing against other athletes from the Netherlands, Italy, China, the USA, and Czechoslovakia.”
