The star athlete, who recently won the Spar Women’s Challenge 10km road race, said this week she was up for the new challenge. “My performance at the Spar race should have sent enough warning shots about my seriousness on winning the Two Oceans this year,” she said.

“My aim this year is to win everything on offer and I am confident that I will be crowned champion after this race. I am going for nothing less than gold and with the support I hope to get from my fans, I am raring to go. I want the world to see that Zimbabwe is one of the best countries when it comes to athletics in the Southern Region,” she added.

“I am hard at training and enjoying every moment of it. Winning the Spar race last week gave me the extra motivation to just continue from where I left.”

Nyahora is not new to winning, having done quite well last year, when she scooped gold at the Nkulumane Spar to Spar race, the City of Polokwane Mayoral Half Marathon and the season-opening BestMed Tuks Marathon in Pretoria. She also won silver medals in the 10km Cape Town Spar Women’s Challenge and the annual Durban Spar Women’s 10 kilometre Challenge.
