Time truly flies when you having fun with Central Gauteng Athletics hosted its second last league of the 2016 cross country season on Saturday, 16 July at Dorothy Nyembe park in Soweto.
Compliments on a great choice of venue is a common sentiment expressed by athletes on the day. A wonderful change from the previous venue the hosting club Take It Easy utilised in past years. Challenging course that represents a true meaning of what cross country stands for.
As we head towards the end of the season, the province is more adamant that this year’s provincials will be on fire. With the likes of Cornelia Joubert (Boxer AC) and Keneilwe Sesing (KPMG RC) being consistent in their performance and Namakwa Nkhasi who now runs for Nedbank RC giving the brothers a literal run for their money.
This week’s 10km event first 3 finishers;
|1.||Namakwa Nkhasi||Nedbank RC||30:48|
|2.||Xolisa Tyali||Nedbank RC||31:49|
|3.||Lucky Mohale||Boxer AC||32:45|
|1.||Cornelia Joubert||Boxer AC||36:47|
|2.||Keneilwe Sesing||KPMG RC||38:39|
|3.||Farida Zwane||Cool Running||38:40|
