ASICS Dominates the AfricanX

ASICS teams were littered across the top of the various categories at the Cell C AfricanX presented by ASICS.

In the Mixed category Dawid Visser and Leilani Scheffer walked away with the overall win after a powerful performance over the three Stages.

Another stellar performance saw Johnny Young and Nicholas Rupanga not only win the Men’s Veteran category but also finish 3rd overall in the Men’s category.

JC Visser and Rohan Kennedy finished less than 5 minutes behind Johnny and Nicholas in overall fourth place after a strong performance.

After winning Stage 1 and leading for a large part of Stage 2 Edwin Sesipi and Givemore Mudzinganyama had to withdraw as a team after Edwin fell sick. Givemore finished the race on his own but it’s been an encouraging first AfricanX for the pair who are sure to be back and stronger next year.

Carla Van Huyssteen and Natia Van Heerden finished in 5th position in the Women’s race.

“It was great to run with Leilani and test ourselves against the other mixed teams. It was a challenging three days but an amazing experience as always at the AfricanX”, says Dawid Visser, Promotions and Training Specialist of ASICS South Africa.
