Local athlete achieves hat trick at Freshpak Fitness Festival

The Freshpak Fitness Festival, one of the country’s largest and most popular multi-sport events, took place in Clanwilliam on Saturday 29 September, and Worcester’s very own Nicholas Quenet excelled in the triathlon.

The superstar triathlete achieved a hat trick in the triathlon at the festival, the 32nd. He retained the title of Men’s Triathlon Champion for the third consecutive year in the festival’s flagship event.

Slashing his previous time by almost four minutes, Nicholas took advantage of the ideal conditions to finish in 01:00:44.

Athletes and spectators were rewarded with a 100% full dam after last year’s lowest level in the event’s history, owing to the drought.

Swimmers and athletes competed on a virtually wind-free day in glorious sunshine and high temperatures characteristic of the Cederberg.

The various events included 1,5 km or 3 km long swim, duathlon (5 km run/20 km cycle/2,5 km run), biathlon (5 km run/20 km cycle) and a triathlon (800 m swim/ 20 km cycle/5 km run) where participants competed individually or as a part of a team. Younger kids also competed in the FitKids challenge (1 km run, 200 m swim, 1 km run) and the Run For Fun (1 km).

A percentage of the proceeds raised for entry fees will be donated to CANSA’s local branch that serves the West Coast region.
