The Western Province SAARA Open was held in Cape Town last weekend.
Cole Wavamunno, Oliver Hutton, and Nathan Holesgrove competed in this competition. This was literally a flying visit to Cape Town and can be best summarized as follows: Shuttle – flight – shuttle – shoot – shuttle – flight – shuttle. Despite the pressure, all three athletes gave a very good account of themselves. Cole, still in recovery from a severe thumb injury, was placed 4th in the U16 age group, with Oliver claiming the bronze medal; and Nathan took the silver medal in the U14 age group. All of our athletes broke the 500-point ceiling, each producing personal best scores.
Congratulations to all three athletes who did so well under really testing circumstances.
