Saturday, 2 November 2019 will forever be remembered in South Africa, as the day that the rugby Springboks lifted the Webb Ellis Cup for the third time …

Meanwhile, the annals of the historic Three Peaks Challenge will record that, in near-perfect weather conditions, top trail runner Kane Reilly obliterated the existing race record with a display of running never before witnessed on the peaks that make up Table Mountain’s toughest endurance challenge.

In a tightly-contested women’s battle, Julika Pahl prevailed over Naomi Brand to set a new women’s record – both went quicker than Katya Soggot’s 2013 mark.
