Following on from our previous two HOT Mann sisters, we complete the series today with Dominique Mann. Yes, three hot sisters in a row. You’re welcome.
If you don’t know who Dom is, you obviously live under a rock, or don’t have internet. Let’s learn a bit more about this incredible athlete!
1. How and when did you get into gymnastics?
When I was 13 years old I was spotted doing self taught tricks on a trampoline by a gymnastics coach, and was told to go down to my local gymnastics club and consider joining as I had natural talent. I did just that and the rest is history!
2. What is your favourite thing about it?
There are so many things I love about my sport, but one thing that stands out for me is being able to keep my body agile and fit. That really is a wonderful feeling.
3. What have been your career highlights?
Well I always go back to the beginning and say that there was no better feeling then receiving my SA Colours for the first time. That moment I will cherish forever. Another would be the 2012 African Champs. I was captain, I took the Gold and did it on home ground! That was really a career topper!
4. You’re a big part of The Sharkettes, how did you get into dancing?
Well being a proud Durban girl and a part time dancer I thought what better way to support the Sharks than on their field cheerleading for them 🙂
5. What is your favourite thing about dancing?
The amazing friends that I have made, and of course the feeling of being on stage, nothing beats it.
6. We’ve seen that you’re in Pretoria a lot. What are you training for now?
There are unbelievable sporting facilities in Pretoria at Tuks and I am able to train for my sport to the best of my ability up here, so I commute between two cities and my two coaches. It’s a hectic lifestyle but I wouldn’t have it any other way! I’m currently training for World Champs in Mexico.
7. And pole vaulting. Tell us how/when/what got you into that?
I started pole vaulting a couple of years ago as a second sport. I did this as it actually goes hand in hand with gymnastics and it’s a great challenge.
8. What is your day like?
Busy! It’s up early for Gymnastics then off for a very quick healthy lunch. Then straight to the track to cross train and pole vault. I also have to fit in my own gym sessions to keep strong. I get home each day at about 7pm and always have lots to do before bed time!
9. What’s next for you?
World Champs in Mexico!
10. What are some things we don’t know about you?
I enjoy a good movie in my spare time and I’m a bit of a chocaholic. I also don’t drink. Not one drop, ever!
11. Most embarrassing dancing/gymnastic incident?
While I was dancing on stage my sequined glove got stuck to my fishnet stocking! I had to do the second half of the routine with my hand attached to my side haha! My friends thought it was hilarious so at least I provided entertainment to some people
12. How would you describe yourself in three words?
Motivated, spontaneous and competitive.
How Hot? Not many people can pull off those hot pants and look sizzling!
