We are proud to have Merlin at our school and she is an inspiration to the rest of our pupils
Clement Kloppers, head teacher
Merlin is currently studying at Jan Mohr Secondary School in Windhoek.
The school takes great pride in Merlin's achievements.
According to the school, the sprinting superstar "puts everything into her training" but is also committed to her studies and works part-time to help support her family. For these reasons, fellow pupils look up to her and see her as a role model.
Jan Mohr Secondary want to see Merlin pursue her dream of competing at the Olympics and hope to see her go on to become Namibia's first female Olympic medallist.
