Spectacular splash at Sunset

The climatic final part of the Ogier Stroke and Stride 2011 swim/run series had the crowd at Sunset House on the edge of their seats.

The challenging conditions and 800m swim didn’t stop South African Marius Acker from gaining the top spot, even though Matthew Courtis left the water over a minute ahead, Acker crossed the finish line in front of him with a time of 20:37.

In the women’s category Jacqui Retief came 9th with a time of 24:40 and Pam Abbott took 14th place in 25:56.
