African Stars went to the top of the log after beating Civics 2-1 on Wednesday night after a last minute goal by Ninja Karongee. Stars lead the log on seven points from three games, but can be overtaken by any one of four teams who all have a game in hand. SKW are second on 6 points while Eleven Arrows, Black Africa and Orlando Pirates are all on four points.
Coastal fever in Swakopmund gains momentum with the Swakop Half Iron taking place on Saturday, December 6. Pupkewitz, FNB and Puma will again be the co-sponsors of the ultra triathlon, which consists of a 1.9km swim, 90km cycle and 21 km run.
Event organisers, Otb Sport, said that the Swakop setting was a big attraction amongst triathletes. A number of South African and international athletes have booked their tickets and last year’s winner, Nico Sterk, a SA top 10 ultra athlete, will be back to defend his title.
