FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 19 February 2012
After having completed the ultimate one day endurance race in 2010, THE IRONMAN, which comprises of a 3,8km swim followed by a 180km cycle and 42,2km running, to make a total of 286km, Liezel has proved that through determination and hard work that anything is possible by completing The Worlds Toughest Canoe Marathon – The Unlimited Dusi on the 18th of February 2012. Liezel set this goal with only 9 weeks to go before the race and 6 qualifying races to be completed before the big day.
She has teamed up with The High Performance Manager for Canoeing South Africa, Gregory van Heerden, for this exciting event. Gregory has a wealth of paddling and coaching experience and is looking forward to returning once again to the race that started him paddling 23 years ago.
The Unlimited Dusi canoe marathon started in Camps Drift, Pietermaritzburg and ended in Blue Lagoon, Durban.
