Lucky Miya wins 100km Skyrun
So proud of Lucky Miya, who I have coached for the past 4 years, winning today's 100km Salomon Skyrun in 12.58. Taking second place was Sange Sherpa, an international runner from Team Instinct Athlete, in 13.56, with Christiaan Greyling 3rd. On Thursday when Lucky and I planned the race we were receiving reports of snow on the mountains. This was a worry, but Lucky has a great attitude and declared it would still be a great experience. His win today follows his second place in this race last year at his first attempt. When he finished 3rd at the SA cross-country champs in his age group recently we knew he was ready for a great Skyrun, with the right blend of speed, strength and endurance. Lucky you beauty!
