This April brings a new gsport theme, focussing on Responsibility. We’ve spoken to a number of the outstanding ladies and athletes featured in this issue about this concept, and it’s interesting to note how most of their perceptions on Responsibility have a personal focus.
In a season during which many of the world’s religions focus on abstinence or fasting in pursuit of spiritual renewal, we invite you to read what our featured personalities have to say about Responsibility, and to re-evaluate your focus on your most urgent needs.
Along with Responsibility, gsport’s main sporting focus for April is on Road Running, and we kick off this issue with a preview of what is affectionately known as the World’s Most Beautiful Marathon, the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon, presented by Nike. Read on…/
