Peters, Haines Claim Victory at Totalsports XTERRA Grabouw Lite

Herbert Peters and Michelle Haines were the XTERRA Warriors to beat on Saturday, 22 February 2014 at the Totalsports XTERRA Lite presented by REHIDRAT® SPORT in Grabouw.

According to Peters, he was merely hoping for a top ten finish.  “I’m from Namibia, we don’t have forests and woods to train in.  I was hoping for a top ten finish, so I’m astonished and very proud to place first today.  This is my first XTERRA event.  The route was well marked, very technical with a lot of climbing.  It’s awesome to win.  I’ll definitely be back next year,” said Peters, who boasts a finishing time of 01hours20minutes10seconds.  Dawie Carstens came in second, while Brandon Schlebusch finished third.

“Someone said gooi mielies so I did,” said an ecstatic Haines.  “This is my first triathlon.  I heard that XTERRA is really good, so I entered.  The course was nice and diverse, while the vibe is awesome and energetic.  I recommend this event as there is something for everyone”.  Haines completed the Totalsports XTERRA Lite in a time of 01hours44minutes35seconds.  Hanmarie Elizabeth Stadler came in second, while Deleen-Marie Steyn finished third.
