Words: Carli-Ann Furno | Photos: Carli-Ann Furno

Enduro riding is a sport that appeals to a select group of adventurers around the world, attracting those who are willing to face the challenge of taking on the toughest terrain that the earth presents to mankind, with no one to help them but their bike. Kirsten Landman is South Africa’s leading enduro female rider, with a sense of courage that has left her country in awe. At only 24 years old, Kirsten proved that no summit is too high for her to climb when she became the only woman in the world to finish Red Bull’s Sea to Sky gold class. Game On Magazine reveals the heart of the athlete behind the helmet. An athlete who has recovered from an almost career ending injury and done incredibly well but feels that she has much, much more to achieve.

You would think that sport involves physical exertion, a few balls or a track in order for it to be classified as a sport but you would be wrong. Mind sports such as war games or online games like DOTA are classified as sports under Mind Sports South Africa.

Steven Heyman Taking Yoga to the Streets

Steven Heyman Taking Yoga to the Streets Although a late starter, having only taken up yoga reasonably late, Steven has breathed new life into the practice in a very short space of time. Originally coming to South Africa to run the local subsidiary of a multi-national company, Steven fell in love with yoga and is today, through his company Yoga Works, one of the most innovative Vinyasa yoga instructors in Johannesburg, and arguably the country.

24

Game On Magazine, June: Issue 29, 2016

Steven is not bound by the stereotypical perceptions of what yoga should be. Instead, he utilises locations such as parks and nature reserves, art galleries, and even stand up paddleboards on city dams, to keep yoga interesting and make it accessible for people from all walks of life.

A total of eight countries competed in the tournament, with South Africa scoring 103 goals. Sydney’s headmaster at Pinelands, Dave Campbell, says: “What stands out about Sydney is her effervescence.

Andrew Hobson has made history at a school renowned for its sporting achievements. The Grade 12 pupil at Paul Roos Gimnasium was picked to represent the South African Under 21 Men’s Hockey team at the National Senior Men’s Interprovincial Tournament in Randburg during April 2016. Andrew’s achievement set a new milestone for a pupil at Paul Roos specifically in the sport of hockey. Andrew comes from a hockey crazy family and was always going to follow in his parents’ footsteps and play the game that they love. The Stellenbosch-born 18-yearold is a defender who also plays hockey for the Maties team at the University of Stellenbosch. Now that he has cracked the national U/21 side, Andrew will be looking forward to the Junior World Cup from 25 November to 11 December in Delhi later this year.
