Kwano Cycling Academy - Plettenberg Bay

This is true sportsmanship... great exampleVery little has been said about this…..On December 2, Basque athlete Iván Fernández Anaya was competing in a cross-country race in Burlada, Navarre. He was running second, some distance behind race leader Abel Mutai - bronze medalist in the 3,000-meter steeplechase at the London Olympics. As they entered the finishing straight, he saw the Kenyan runner - the certain winner of the race - mistakenly pull up about 10 meters before the finish, thinking he had already crossed the line.

Fernández Anaya quickly caught up with him, but instead of exploiting Mutai’s mistake to speed past and claim an unlikely victory, he stayed behind and, using gestures, guided the Kenyan to the line and let him cross first.

Ivan Fernandez Anaya, a Basque runner of 24 years who is considered an athlete with a big future (champion of Spain of 5,000 meters in promise category two years ago) said after the test:

“But even if they had told me that winning would have earned me a place in the Spanish team for the European championships, I wouldn’t have done it either. I also think that I have earned more of a name having done what I did than if I had won. And that is very important, because today, with the way things are in all circles, in soccer, in society, in politics, where it seems anything goes, a gesture of honesty goes down well.”

He said at the beginning: “unfortunately, very little has been said of the gesture. And it’s a shame. In my opinion, it would be nice to explain to children, so they do not think that sport is only what they see on TV: violent kicks in abundance, posh statements, fingers in the eyes of the enemy …”

In the interests of kindness, please pass this on. 🙂

J2C IN THE BAG... WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!!

Today Tim Hanley, Sipho Mthembu and Siphe Ncapayi all completed their 1st Joburg2c... lots of pain, joy, many lessons learned and new friendships made. Gutsy rides by all three who each had their individual challenges and goals.
Tim having to balance the demands of corporate leadership and time to train. Sipho struggled with hovering flu all week, but still managed a creditable 138 in a field of 508 teams.
Siphe who in spite of several mechanical setbacks finished 147 (rode about 180km and 3,000m single speed losing over 5 hrs to the field) Without the lost time he would have finished in the top 50... what could have been and what lessons learned.

Huge thank you to Tim Hanley and Jan Joubert (Rainmaker Solutions/ Buffalo Foundation) for their generous sponsorship of the Kwano team and for Tim making sure Sipho and Siphe had pro treatment throughout.

Great partners and super friends!!!
