JOHANNESBURG – Nick Bester is quietly confident that Team South Africa will do very well at the IAU 50km World Championships in Brasov, Romania next Sunday.
The 12-member team of six men and six women will leave South Africa next Thursday to go and square up with 30 other countries for the title of the best team in the 50km distance.
With just a little over a week before competition day, Bester is delighted that all the runners are fit and peaking just in time for the challenge.
“We are in contact with all the runners and they are doing very well in training. They are all excitedly looking forward to the challenge and they want to represent the country well,” Bester said.
And the former Comrades Marathon champion is in no doubt the team will fly SA’s flag high.
