The Sanlam Cape Mile will debut at the picturesque Eikenhof Dam (Grabouw Country Club, Western Cape) on Saturday, 14 February 2015. Attracting the attention of a number of SA’s top swimmers, including Myles Brown, the Sanlam Cape Mile is guaranteed to be action-packed from start to finish.
“Swimming is a great way to get rid of excess energy,” says Brown. “It’s a great form of exercise and will keep your body, mind and soul healthy. A very important tip to newcomers would be to always try to have fun and enjoy the sport. There will be plenty of ups and downs. It’s vital that you still enjoy it”.
“My race day advice would be to stay relaxed and stick to your game plan,” continues Brown. “Listen to what your coach says and trust in the hard work that you put in during training. I really enjoy Cape Town and can’t wait to see how everything goes on the day. Hopefully I will be able to keep up with Danie Marais and Chad Ho”.
