Teamwork key to setting the South African 5000m record says Mokoka

Stephen Mokoka set a South Africa 5000m record of 13:10.89 at the South Africa Senior Track and Field Championships in Stellenbosch Western Cape province on Saturday 18 April.

Stephen Mokoka set a South Africa 5000m record of 13:10.89 at the South Africa Senior Track and Field Championships in Stellenbosch Western Cape province on Saturday 18 April.


STEPHEN Mokoka set a new national 5000m record at the South Africa Senior Athletics Championship in Stellenbosch Western Cape province on Saturday (18 April).
The championship is the most important event for athletes aspiring to be selected on the South Africa team to the IAAF World Athletics Championship in Beijing China in August. Besides Mokoka ten other athletes attained the stringent qualifiers for Beijing.
Mokoka attributes team work as the key ingredient in his setting the South Africa 5000m record of 13 minutes and 10.89 seconds (13:10.89). This team work begins in training under the Michael ‘Sponge’ Training camp.
“This year training has been particularly exciting as I have training partners and we help push each other during training. So when we go to competitions we have a strategy,” Mokoka began.

“Our strategy did not work well at the World Cross country championship in China last month. This time in Stellenbosch we planned to take full advantage of our strength,” Mokoka explained.
His training partners are national cross country champion Precious Mashele, World Student Games half marathon champion Gladwin Sibabalwe Mzazi and Sibusiso Nzima.
“The ghastly wind on the back straight played havoc on the first day (Friday) and so we failed to run sub 28 minutes in 10000m as planned. The weather was much better when we came to line up for 5000m,” Mokoka recalls.
“We took turn pushing the pace for the first 4,000m. Thereafter with the announcer reading out the time at the end of each lap, I stayed on target for the record,” says Mokoka.
Mokoka cross the finish line in 13:10.89. He was followed by Mashele in a life time best of (13:40.97), Mzazi (13:41.91), and Nzima 13:43.00.
The previous South Africa 5000m record of 13:14.16 was run by Shadrack Hoff in Gateshead Britain on 02 July 1995. Mokoka’s previous best in 5000m was 13:27.22 in Nelson Mandela Bay (formerly Port Elizabeth) in 2010.
“I expected to break the record by just a second. The animated cheering from fans on both sides of the track was a hug motivation. I wish we had such massive support from the crowd at our races more often,” says Mokoka.

“This has been the toughest senior championships for me. Jaco (Engelbrecht) has improved a lot. Perhaps I would not have thrown so well if I did not have such a stiff competition.
“My hope was to win my first nationals senior title. Although I am disappointed not having achieved my goal, I am glad I have qualified early for the World championship,” says Engelbrecht.

Genzebe Dibaba is the first Ethiopian to be crowned the Laureus World Sportswoman of the Year

Ethiopia’s World Indoor 3000m champion Genzebe Dibaba was crowned the 2015 Sportswoman of the Year at the Laureus World Sports Awards in Shanghai China on Wednesday (15 April).
Dibaba stood out for setting three new world indoor times in a fortnight during the 2014 indoor track season. Only American Jesse Owens and Jamaican Usain Bolt (both sprinters) have set three world records in a space of two weeks.
Dibaba set a 1500m world record of 3:55.17 in Karlsruhe Germany on 01 February. She went on to establish her second world indoor record of 8:16.60 in 3000m in Stockholm Sweden on 06 February. Dibaba then ran 9:00.48 for a World Best in Two miles in Birmingham Britain on 15 February.
Dibaba won the 3000m gold medal at the 2014 World Indoor Championships in Sopot Poland.
When the outdoor season got underway Dibaba posted her lifetime best of 8:26.21 in the 3000m at the IAAF Diamond League in Doha Qatar on 09 May. She went on to run the world fastest 5000m of the year when she clocked 14:28.88 at the Diamond League in Monaco.
Dibaba crowned the year with a gold medal in 3000m at the IAAF Continental Cup in Marrakech Morocco in September. She is the first female Ethiopian to win a World Laureus Sports Award.

South Africa’s former African 100m champion Simon Magakwe suspended for doping offense

In happier times: Simon Makagkwe and his coach Eugene Thipe after he set the South African senior men's 100m record of 9.98 seconds last year at the University of Pretoria in the South African capital Tshwane

In happier times: Simon Makagkwe and his coach Eugene Thipe after he set the South African senior men’s 100m record of 9.98 seconds last year at the University of Pretoria in the South African capital Tshwane


SIMON Magakwe, of South Africa is suspended for two years following an anti-doping rule violation, Athletics South Africa (ASA) disclosed in Johannesburg on Wednesday (15 April).
According to the national federation, Magakwe who won the 100m at the 2012 African Senior Athletics Championships in Porto Novo Benin, failed to appear for an out of competition doping test on 22 December 2014.
“His case was referred by the IAAF to the Disciplinary Panel at ASA for adjudication. On 29 January 2015, a Disciplinary panel of ASA found him guilty of an anti-doping rule violation and imposed a two year sanction,” the ASA statement read.
ASA say Magakwe has not lodged an appeal against this decision with the Court of Arbitration in Sports (CAS) which is based in Lausanne Switzerland. Consequently ASA says Magakwe is banned from all athletics activities from 29 January until 28 January 2017.
Last year Makagwe won an unprecedented sixth consecutive senior men’s national 100m title. What’s more his winning time of 9.98 seconds is a national record.
Makagwe is the only South African with a sub ten seconds in the event. Sadly he is now unable to extend his winning streak at the South African Senior National Championship starting tomorrow (Friday 17 April) in Stellenbosch Western Cape province.
