The DTS field in Olympia was a hive of activity on Saturday as an estimated 3 000 people turned up for the annual Windhoek Draught Volleyball for All tournament.
It was the 29th consecutive year that the tournament had taken place and once again Windhoek’s business community was out in full force as a record 228 teams entered the tournament.
According to one of the organisers, Heiko Kesselman, the emphasis was on fun while it served as a team building exercise for companies.
Dan Craven was a comfortable winner of the Dordabis Road Race, the third race in the Windhoek Pedal Power series on Saturday morning.
Craven won the 120km event in 3 hours 10 minutes 42 seconds to finish well ahead of Adriaan Maartens (3:11:56) and Ingram Cuff (3:12:56).
Jaco Hanekom came fourth in 3:16:33 while development rider Costa Seibeb came fifth in 3:16:36.
Michael Pretorius won the Junior Men category over 100km in 2:49:23, beating Thorsten Kreft by a second in a sprint to the line. Jernell Barth came third in 2:49:24.
