In 2010 Puseletso Mabote underwent an emergency amputation after a truck crashed into the family vehicle on the way to school. The accident claimed his right leg from above the knee.
After struggling with his mobility for three years, he became a beneficiary of the Jumping Kids Prosthetic Fund in 2013. Puseletso was introduced to Para athletics to aid rehabilitation, as well as, to give him a chance to test his prosthetic equipment, and meet and mingle with physically challenged peers achieving great things.
In 2019, through intervention from the Jumping Kids Prosthetic Fund, Puseletso started high school at prestigious King Edward VII School in Johannesburg. That same year he set a new world record in men’s 200m T63 at the 2019 World Para Athletics Junior Championships for South Africa.
