Johandri Leicester dominated the field at the Fedhealth XTERRA in Nelson Mandela Bay on Saturday, 11 February 2017.

Leicester’s finishing time of 02 hours 38 minutes 20 seconds secured her the top spot on the podium in the women’s race.  “Today was tough,” says Leicester.  “I misjudged the swim, but managed to catch a wave on my way out.  I completed the mountain bike discipline slower than in 2016, but there was more sand this year so that is understandable.  I just took it easy.  Overall I had a good race.  I really like the ocean swim and technical mountain biking.” Alexia Loizou came in second, while Tracey Campbell finished third.

Says Jeremy Yatt, Principal Officer of Fedhealth: “The Fedhealth XTERRA Nelson Mandela Bay Full event brings seasoned off-road triathletes a wonderfully unique course that features the ocean and beach, parts of the city and challenging off-road trails. It’s the perfect event for proving one’s endurance and technical ability, with the added bonus that the whole family can join in the fun and participate in the other events as well.”
