This is dedicated to Race Walking, news about the sport, results and much more.
For Walkers, By Walkers with a focus on getting the world to take notice!!!
I got involved with Racewalking around 1997 by default.
Our local high school Geography teacher (Andrew Fraser my guru, my inspiration) was looking for athletes to compete in the local racewalking race. FYI: I got dragged into this by my friend Allan Young 😉
At the time, i thought it was a real laugh… but by the next year i broke my 1st South African Junior Record for the 10km walk. From there I moved up the ranks and even made the Olympic Development Squad for 2004.
After battling with serious injuries, i gave in to the fact that it was not meant to be…
However, after years of pondering i decided to get back into shape in December 2013. Peter Gaiser, helped me through this to lose weight and as i got fitter i started to believe in myself again.
I have now assembled a team to help me make this dream a reality!!!
Yours in walking
