“Ludwig Mamabola” Disqualified as Loskop Winner

MIDDELBURG –2012 Comrades winner,  Ludwig Mamabolo, was announced as winner of the 29thForever Resorts Loskop Ultra Marathon earlier this morning, only to be disqualified as Raymond Phahladi. Second placed Zongamele Dyubeni was officially placed first winning both the Open and Veteran categories.

Dyubeni lodged an official appeal against the winner, stating that he knows Ludwig Mamabola and that they both run for Nedbank Athletics. The Race referees investigated and after viewing the finish-line video realised that the first man across the line was in fact Raymond Phahladi, also from Nedbank, who won the “Om die Dam” Marathon earlier this year.

Phahladi, who confessed to not entering for the Forever Resorts Loskop Marathon, ran the race under the number entered for Ludwig Mamabolo. As no notice of substitution was given to the race organisers, the objection was upheld. Phahladi was disqualified and Dyubeni was placed first with an official winning time of 02:50:22, some minute and a half later than Phahladi’s initial winning time.

Joseph Mputhi of Toyota was placed second in a time of 02:52:26 and Rufus Photo of Pietersburg Road Runners third at 02:52:39.

The ladies race was a humdinger with Ethiopian athlete, Sisay Arsedi winning in 03:17:11 for Nedbank. Pre-race favourites Yolande Maclean and Riana van Niekerk finishing second and third respectively. Maclean ran in 03:23:15 and van Niekerk in 03:33:12.

The Ultra Marathon had 3 234 athletes entered of which 789 were women. The ever popular 21,1km Wild Challenge drew 1 541 entrants in its 8th year of running. This half-marathon is run through the Loskop Nature Reserve and the charitable income is donated to the “Save the Rhino”-project.

The 21km was won by Retsepile Khotle of Scaw Harriers in a time of 01:10:29 and the ladies run by previous winner, Paulina Phaho in a time of 01:32:35.

“Although we regret this unfortunate situation, it underlines the strict discipline and trustworthy systems we have implemented at the Forever Resorts Loskop Series,” said Christo Wagenaar, Committee member of the Marathon.

Next year sees the 30th commemoration run on Saturday 18 April 2015.
