Congratulations to Tlou Mathiba for completing the 2022 Comrades Marathon

Posted on September 11, 2022

Tlou Mathiba, Collection Developer in the Scholarly Communication: Open Scholarship Office recently completed the Comrades Marathon on 28 August 2022 with an official time of 10:20:36
We caught up with him and asked him about his experience of completing the ultimate human race:
"As a comrade marathon debutant, I had mixed emotions on the day, especially at the start and at the finish line. The national anthem, Shosholoza, and the Chariots of Fire made it more emotional but I had one goal in mind, which is to finish on the day. I had put in the training and knew I had to apply what I have been putting at training, consistency and discipline were key to finishing my debut comrade."
Congratulation Tlou, you have made the DLS very proud!
