Bethlehem participants dominate at the Golden Gate 21km marathon

20 Mar,2016WoF service

Two firefighters from the Bethlehem base stole the spotlight at the Golden Gate Marathon. During the marathon, Working on Fire participants for both females and males dominated the top 10 positions.

The two WOF participants were the overall winners in the male and female category. Zongezile Ntseke claimed the first position in the male category.

He finished the marathon in 1 hour and 45 minutes. His colleague, Nkadimeng Sibeko, led the females and finished in 2 hours 45 minutes. All the top three of the female runners were WOF participants.

He said his win came as a surprise for him because he did not prepare well for the marathon. “I did not prepare myself, maybe I won because running is something that is in my blood.”

Sibeko said she was also excited that she won and hopes the next marathon will have competition for her. The two walked away with medals, trophies and two nights accommodation at the Golden Gate Hotel.
