Embark athletes excel at SA Duathlon Champs

After the half ironman in January this year, we selected a few athletes that we thought had potential to make the Western Province Duathlon team to compete at SA Champs. These athletes trained in a group for the 3 months, following a very structured program to get them ready for the Western Province Champs, and ultimately for SA Champs.

They all exceled at the WP Champs and qualified for the provincial team. Last weekend they travelled to Potch to compete for WP at the SA Champs. Congratulations to  Hilda for 6th overall and 2nd in the 35-39 age group. Congrats to Hannah for winning her 25-29 age group, and congrats to Elrika for narrowly missing the podium, and getting a 4th in the 25-29 age group. The SA team will be released soon, and this team will travel to Canada to compete at the World Duathlon Champs in August. Holding thumbs for our girls to be selected!

This potential provincial team will be a yearly group and will once again be selected after the half ironman in January. For more info about this group please get in touch with us.
