Cape Town – The Quinet siblings took the honours in the men's and the women’s races respectively at the inaugural Torpedo SwimRun Val de Vie.
The event took place on Sunday, with Nick finishing the 10km course in a time of 44:20 minutes, negotiating six swims and six run segments across the length and breadth of the well-known Franschhoek lifestyle estate.
Alexandra finished in a time of 55:03, finishing sixth overall.
Nick, who most recently won the Torpedo SwimRun Cape in November with race partner Jamie Riddle, said: “The shorter and flat course meant faster racing, elevated lactate and marginal room for errors.
"The rain held off just long enough for the finish of the race and the flowing single track, serene dams, bridge jumping and polo field running was such a pleasure to navigate.”
