Dominique D’Oliveira (Bellville, Cape Town) was on top form during the much anticipated Fedhealth IMPI Challenge #4 Elite Race at the scenic Wiesenhof Wildlife Park (Stellenbosch) on Saturday, 17 November 2018.
According to D’Oliveira, the Fedhealth IMPI #4 Elite Race featured a beautiful course. “It was super hilly and the 4km brick carry was just insane. Pieter du Plessis (IMPI Challenge Race Director) is just crazy in his head. We had some heavy bag carries, a couple of them and then some more carries. For me the really fun part was right at the end with all the hanging obstacles and the nets.
“It was a fun race, I really enjoyed it. I paced myself and had fun along the way chatting to people. The vibe was awesome. My first obstacle course race was an IMPI Challenge in 2012 or 2013. I remember watching the elites, wandering if I could do that. To come back especially on the 10th anniversary of the Fedhealth IMPI Challenge and win is really special. Looking back at how far I have come is pretty awesome. I feel really blessed.”
D’Oliveira completed the Fedhealth IMPI #4 Elite Race in a deserving time of 02 hours 19 minutes 07 seconds. Elma Kemp came in second, while Cathy Weedall finished third.
Celebrating its 10th anniversary on the day, adventure seekers of all ages got to join in on the fun at the 2018 Fedhealth IMPI Challenge season finale.
