DESPITE temperatures soaring to 32°C, the 2017 Mudskipper was a huge success - the event is growing with each year and this year we had over 160 entries, a new record. From two year olds to 12 year olds, everyone had fun participating in the swimming-cycling-running event. A big thank you goes to Olive Surendorff and her Mudskipper team for preparing the course and making sure that everything ran smoothly. A big thank you also goes to all our moms and dads of the primary school and the Kindergarten - without your help and support we could never have done it. Your participation in marshalling or working in the kitchen is highly appreciated.A big thank you also to our main sponsors, aQuellé and Spur and all our other generous sponsors.We are proud of Julian Königkrämer, Liam Uys and Sienna Kimble, who as a team, won the primary schools’ challenge. Benjamin Rabe in Grade 7 took part in the individual half-distance Mudman. We look forward to many more successes in 2018, when our young athletes will no doubt be looking to improve their performances even further.
