Durban 10k PB Galore for our boys
All our three charges at the highly competitive race produced PBs and good performances overall.
Cutman showed his intention to win the race with a surge that shook a massive pack with 2km to go. At the end he had to settle for 4th with a 6-second PB, 28:26.
A top 10 eluded Kabelo Seboko again with a 12th place finish but he took home a 29-second PB, 28:48.
Tshepiso Khati didn't dissapoint clocking an 18-second PB for 28th position.
It is not a secret that I am a critical coach. I think many people may not be aware how filled up with praises I am when I see athletes doing well. In this sport you do not get many opportunities. One race can elevate you whilst another can reduce you to the physiotherapist's be with injuries. So I tell athletes: "Seize the opportunity".
The foundation has continued to attract support from prominent local and international brands. We are happy to be an official nutrition ambassador for 32Gi which keeps our runners and their dreams fuelled up.
