HEROS NEVER DIE
Rest in Peace Madiba.
Some people inspire individuals, groups, tribes even nations!
There are very few who inspire generations.
Determined to use the world stage to unite our nation, Nelson Mandela rallied international support to bring the Rugby World Cup to South Africa in 1995.
Rugby is a sport of brute force and as such, rugby symbolised apartheid opression to many black africans but this didn’t deter Madiba.

IFSC CLIMBING WORLD CUP PREM 2013
Victories for favoRites and LastMinute Wins in
Suspense until the very last second was the mark of the IFSC Lead and Speed World Cup in Perm last weekend. In the end, local heroes Alina Gaidamakina and Arseniy Shevchenko were the fastest athletes in Russia, and gold in the Lead competitions went to Jain Kim and Ramón Julian Puigblanque!
As expected, Russian Speed power dominated once more on the home turf in Perm: Five (women) and four (men) athletes represented the White-Blue-Red in the top eight demonstrating the current strength of last weekend’s host nation. And so double Russian Gold was actually no surprise at the Sport Center of Sucharev. This time 23-year-old Arseniy Shevchenko stepped into the breach for his compatriot and World Cup leader Stanislav Kokorin, ending up in the finals against reigning European champion Libor Hroza. But Hroza fell and Shevchenko celebrated his first world cup victory ever with a final time of 7.65 seconds. In the women’s competition, the Russian ladies conquered the whole podium: Gold for World Cup leader Alina Gaidamakina (8.35 seconds in the finals), Silver for Yuliya Levochkina, Bronze for Mariia Krasavina.
