Nedbank Running Club`s athletes shine at the Spar woman`s race in Durban
Lebogang Phalula races to victory in 25th Durban SPAR Women’s 10km
Durban at its best, Lebogang Phalula claimed a dramatic and sensational victory in the 25th Durban SPAR Women’s 10km race today (Sunday) in a time of 33.06.
Crossing the line in tears of joy, the Soweto-based runner collapsed on her knees after winning, completely overwhelmed by her victory.
On a picture perfect warm spring morning, with a slight breeze, the elite runners started off in a pacey fashion, with race favorite, Green Dream Team Athletes Irvette Van Zyl blazing a trail in the lead and Phalula and Mapaseka Makhanya close behind with Phalula’s twin Diana hot on their heels. But in the end it was Lebogang Phalula taking the honours, and last year’s second place Nedbank Running Clubs Rutendo Nyahora shaving off 14 seconds from her time, and Rene Kalmer coming in third position
The Nedbank Running Club Soweto Development athletes, twin sisters Keneilwe Sesing and Kefilwe Molefe also performed very well and are improving in every race. Keneilwe Sesing finished in 36:54 with Kefilwe Molefe not far behind her.
