HARD work, perseverance and sheer grit are what drove athletes, both big and small and from all over the world, to the finish line this past weekend.

The young and the business-minded saw their hard work pay off during the Isuzu Corporate Triathlon Challenge and the Spur IRONKIDS events that took place on Saturday, April 14, while the rest took on the daunting task of completing the Standard Bank IRONMAN African Championship on Sunday.

It turned out to be an especially great year for Nelson Mandela Bay when local resident Kyle Buckingham stepped up to take first place in the event on Sunday. Lulama Zenzile was also there to capture the unique IRONMAN spirit.
