The SA menís team and hpc sponsored Tuks triathletes won a bronze medal at the 11th World University Triathlon Championships in Taiwan on Saturday, 30 June.
Wikus Weber ran himself into an awesome fourth place, while Wian Sullwald, aged only 19 and a competitor at the inaugural Youth Olympics two years ago, once again showed maturity beyond his years with a ninth place. Rudolf Naude put on a gutsy display and despite cramping from the 7km mark on the run, still finished well in 19th place.
