Dominique D’Oliveira is hoping to defend her title at the Fedhealth IMPI Challenge Elite Race at Coetzenburg (Stellenbosch) this coming Sunday, 08 April 2018.

The only female competitor to successfully complete all 26 obstacles in November, D’Oliveira claimed gold in the women’s elite race in a deserving time of 02 hours 24 minutes 10 seconds.

Although struggling with an injury since January, D’Oliveira is hoping to be back in action on Sunday.  “The IMPI Challenge Elite Race balances a variety of challenging obstacles with a tough run route,” says D’Oliveira.  “For me the toughest part is the running, but I am growing to love it.  My strength lies in completing the obstacles.  In my current situation, if I am able to race, my primary goal will be to look after my body.  If, however, I am unable to compete, I will definitely be there to support.”
