Siya Kolisi is the captain of the South Africa national team and the Stormers in Super Rugby. He is the first black man to serve as captain, leading the team to a historic victory in the 2019 World Cup Final.
Siya lifting the trophy is the enduring image of the whole tournament. Having grown up in poverty, Siya has become an inspiration off the field as well as on it. Named this year as the most influential person in rugby, he was also named a global advocate by the United Nations for its Spotlight Initiative to end violence against women.
Following the success of The Springboks Rugby World Cup triumph, Siya and his wife took the initiative to create The Kolisi Foundation to assist vulnerable South African households and individuals who combat the struggle of poverty daily - https://kolisifoundation.org/
