It’s great being able to finish off the year with two consecutive wins. Especially seeing as this year has been a struggle. It makes my break now much more worth it!
I wasn’t feeling confident in the swim as I felt tired, but I was happy to be able to create a nice gap over Wian and Wikus. I didn’t really know what to expect on the bike, as I have never raced Wian in a non – drafting format before. It was really encouraging that I managed to open an even bigger lead after the bike. When I knew the time gap was around 3m 45 after the bike I knew I would win and it was one of my most enjoyable runs ever!
Congrats to Wian and Wikus for 2nd and 3rd on the podium.
It’s been a pleasure racing the 5150 African Champs and defending my title from last year. The organization was really good and I look forward to defend it again next year!
Thanks to Joe Schoeman and Alisdair Hatfield for coaching me and getting me back on track! Also to FINIS, HUUB Wetsuits and Cytomax for the support this year.
I look forward to toe the line again next year!
