Ntombesintu Mfunzi, crossed the finish line in a time of 36 minutes and 27 seconds at Kings Beach on Thursday, to win the Nelson Mandela Bay Diva Run (South Africa).  Besides the gold medal, she also won the R10,000 cash prize ($709US).  “I am smiling now because I have won the race. Running is the only thing that makes me feel happy,” the 36-year-old Nedbank Running Club athlete said. “I enjoyed the race. I was not expecting a win because yesterday my coach said I was to do a hard 15km, because we are training for the Cape Town Marathon. “So, today it was just part of training and I told him I would accept whatever my body gave me on the day. “This shows that I am ready for the Cape Town Marathon. “This is my first ever win in the Diva Run. “I usually come second or third, but never first. “My focus now is on the Cape Town Marathon and after that I am going to take a month to relax and in December start training for Two Oceans, so there is not much rest at all.” (08/11/2018) Views: 1,456 ⚡AMP
