Kylie, who is 13, was named the captain of athletics junior to SP division at Dainfern College on Monday.
"Kylie is a strong leader, and her duties will include keeping her team members calm and motivated, as well as assisting the teachers," says Amor.
"It's a massive achievement. She is captain of equestrian as well. After every heartache, she bounces back. Kylie trains morning and night, while still doing her homework," the mother-of-two adds.
The happy mother adds that Kylie's best trait is how "humble" she is, saying: "She has the best personality."
"My children don't have au pairs or tutors. Mommy has to drive them around - with no extra help, except my parents. I work my schedule around my kids' "
Amor ends off by saying: "I am so proud and happy. At the moment, Kylie is fourth in the world [equestrian], and there is a high possibility that she will represent South Africa in Hong Kong at the World Cup."
