VAN ZYL ACHIEVES PERSONAL BEST AT TOTALSPORTS LADIES RACE STELLENBOSCH
Irvette Van Zyl (Nedbank Athletics Club) had a stellar day of running on Saturday, 09 August 2014 claiming the 10km Totalsports Ladies Race Stellenbosch victory in a time of 32 minutes 20 seconds, a new personal best for this inspirational runner who recently returned from injury.
“I’m still in shock,” said a delighted Van Zyl. “I was hoping for a time of 33:15, not once did I expect to achieve a new personal best. Everything just went right today. The route wasn’t easy. There were a lot of turns with a few hills. I knew Rene was close to me. I kept hearing something behind me, but I think it was my pony tail hitting against my sun glasses”.
“I am very happy to have won two out of the three Totalsports Ladies Race events this year,” continues Van Zyl. “Unfortunately I would have had to be in two places today had I wanted to win the Johannesburg race as well. I am enjoying running again and am therefore very excited about what lies ahead. Rene and I will be celebrating Women’s Day for the rest of the week here in Stellenbosch”. Rene Kalmer came in second, while Zintle Xiniwe finished third.
Alternative pop singer/songwriter and producer, Jimmy Nevis closed off the Women’s Day celebrations by serenading runners and spectators at the Coetzenburg Stadium.
