WP 2

This past July saw EC Active once again joining up with JJ Smith and Hoerskool Kemptonpark to take more than 70 athletes for a 9 day training camp in the mountains of Sabie for the 2016 Eagles Academy. Of these 70 athletes 3 men hailed from the Western Province.

In a province where only 4 athletes per category made it, all three men had to take everything they learnt on the camp and apply it at the WP champs, and so they did. Anthony Timoteus(UWC) not only bagged a silver medal in the u/23 men 4km but a bronze in the senior men 10km as well. In the very same u/23 men’s race Heinrich Wagner(KPMG) took a 4th position to secure his spot in the team. In the junior men’s 8km the 2016 Eagles Academy athlete of the camp Jason Koopman(UWC) also booked his ticket to George when he claimed a 2nd place behind Mcmarshall Hartzenberg.

Congrats to all three these incredible athletes as well as their coaches Glen Bentley and Ernie Gruhn! See you in Pacaltsdorp!
