Claude Moshiywa + SA @ComradesRace winners welcomed by Minister of Sports in Cape Town

The South African athletes who attained positions within the top 10 (male and female) on Sunday’s Comrades Marathon Race were invited and flown to Cape Town to meet with the Minister of Sports and Recreation, Fikile Mbulula, and other dignitaries, and thereafter had an extremely busy day, which included a visit to Parliament. I do believe that this is the first time that the South African Government has gone all out to acknowledge and commend our outstanding South African athletes.

Claude was asked to give a speech this morning which was to be broadcast on a number of South African television channels this evening. Claude took time out of his hectic schedule to send us some pictures, apologies for the quality. Since his very beautiful wife was also invited (Kudos to Dept of Sports and Recreation) I have no doubt that she would have been camera-ready and we will have exclusives very shortly.

In this picture are Claude (receiving the bouquet) along with Ludwick Mamobolo, and 2 of the three Toyota SA Athletics Club Top 10 winners.

Congratulations to all, particularly to Claude, who has been with Craig Fry Management since 2010 and who was, without a doubt, deserving of this year’s win!
