Vaylen, who fell in love with live television at 15 years old, is the most recent addition to the Sports Anchors on Morning Live, joining in May 2011. She began by reading and compiling sports news stories on Saturday and Sunday mornings. In addition she currently reports on various SABC shows and on radio for YFM. From 2005 onwards, Vaylen covered a variety of sports events and highlights including broadcasting on a range of disability and alternative sport at the 2005 X Games in Los Angeles, as well as the All Africa Games in 2007 and the Beijing Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Argus and the Two Oceans. She then went on to anchor the Commonwealth Games in 2010 and worked on the FIFA World Cup locally. A personal triumph for this sports fanatic is that she has both reported on and competed in the Comrades Marathon twice! She describes herself as a broadcaster, runner, sports lover and A Woman!
