Cyclists targeted on mountain TARREN­LEE HABELGAARN

CYCLISTS are being warned to not ride alone following the second mugging incident on Table Mountain this month. Merle Collins, spokesperson for Table Mountain National Parks, says cyclist Patrick O’Brien was mugged near King’s Blockhouse by two men while cycling on Friday morning. Collins points out this is the second such incident in the area since the start of the year. “When Table Mountain National Parks arrived on the scene, O’Brien had been roughed up and was traumatised. This is a concern as there was no reason for the level of aggravation shown,” she adds. The attackers took O’Brien’s cellphone and cash before fleeing the scene, Collins says. She confirms that a cellphone was also taken from the first victim, cyclist Graham Redelinghuys. Redelinghuys was mugged earlier this month by two men at the same location. Collins says although they cannot say whether the same people are responsible, they are working with the police to try and apprehend those responsible. “The only way for us to prevent these mugging is by apprehending the people responsible.” She adds: “Most of the Table Mountain National Park is an open access park and has no fencing. People like the fact that they can get out of their cars and enter the park.” Collins, however, points out that this makes most areas of the park vulnerable and an easy target for those looking to do others harm.

“We would be really grateful for people to lay a charge at a police station. When we have a detailed report and identikits we can work from that,” she says. When asked whether a case has been reported, Sergeant Hilton Malila, spokesperson for Woodstock Police Station, says no case had been reported over the weekend. Collins says Table Mountain National Parks is always exercising preventative measures and regularly perform patrols and searches. She says: “We are investigating escape routes and possible spots where people could hide out. The dogs are brought in to sniff where people could be hiding out.” Although Table Mountain National Park and police are working together to try and prevent future muggings, Collins is asking cyclists to be very aware of their surroundings. “We would like to warn any cyclists or joggers to make sure they are not riding alone,” says Collins. “If you look around you should at least see another cyclists in the distance. Do not cycle where it is deserted and carry less valuables.” . In October, the website Climb ZA warned cyclists and runners “in the Blockhouse/ Rhodes Memorial area to be on the lookout for a menacing group of youths who are not afraid to confront and harass people”. In January 2011, a media website reported on cyclist Ian Mackie who was “repeatedly stabbed by two assailants above Rhodes Memorial”. The attack on Mackie occurred “in broad daylight”. Climb ZA said there were 11 attacks on cyclists and runners in 2011.

Yummy food for thought TARREN­LEE HABELGAARN

You are what you eat. For years people have been obsessed with phrases such as “healthy body, healthy mind”, and it’s true, says a dietitian. What children eat have a major impact on their brain. “Your brain is dependent on a normal blood sugar level, so any people or children with low or high blood sugar cannot concentrate properly. Therefore it is of utmost importance to eat regularly to help keep your blood sugar at a normal level,” says dietitian Magdalene Pieters. And, says Pieters, you don’t need expensive or exclusive foods to achieve this. A healthy combination of food groups in either a meal or snack will suffice. Brain boosting foods do not have to burn a hole in your pocket, but, more importantly, Pieters says, the best thing to do is to avoid foods that affect the brain negatively. Focus Instead on foods that are beneficial to the brain. “It has nothing to do with affordability and more to do with trying to eat natural foods, the way nature intended us to eat,” she says. When looking at food you need to decide is this natural, wholesome and healthy or if it is only the nice tasting part of a natural food

Pieters says children should be encouraged to drink water whenever they feel thirsty or hungry. “A dehydrated body and brain cannot function properly and sometimes children get overweight because they confuse thirst with hunger and eat too much,” she says. With the new school year having just started a good eating habit could help improve a child’s performance. Pieters says good foods to include in your child’s lunch box are low GI bread (which decreases the sugar spike), and a protein that suits your pocket such as HEALTHY OPTIONS: The variety of choices to give your day meat, cheese, peanut butter or a healthy kickstart include yogurt and fruit.

The tomato added to most tins is also ters. Breakfast is also very important to kick- very good, filled with anti-oxidants that prostart a day, says Pieters. She lists low GI toast, tect against many diseases,” says Pieters. She highlights that it is also affordable and egg, peanut butter, low GI oats or muesli, yoghurt and a fruit you can stock up and keep some. “I combine it with wholewheat pasta, onor few raisins as good breakfast choices for ions and spices, then add a thin layer of gratchildren.

like sugar, oil, fat, cream and white refined starch. A good guideline is to try and avoid foods that are dyed, changed or fried. Certain foods, such as fried foods, sweets, sugar and sweetened cooldrinks, have a negative impact on the brain. “Bought fried fast foods are the worst because the oil might be boiling for many hours. Trans fats replace the good essential Omega-3 fats in the brain, and may cause Attention Deficit Disorder and mood disorders like depression because of a lack of Omega-3 fatty acids,” says Pieters. “Fried fast foods are one of the reasons so many young people feel depressed these days.” Sugar is digested very quickly and spikes blood sugar levels. According to Pieters a lot of insulin must be secreted to lower the blood sugar again. “A child with a high blood sugar will not feel full of energy, like most people think. They will feel drowsy and tired. If their sugar drops too low after the spike they will feel nervous, edgy and jittery. They won’t be able to sit still, can’t concentrate and everything around them will draw their attention away from their work,” she says. Water with a meal that combines protein, fibre, vitamins, minerals and healthy fat is very good at empowering the brain.

WHEN did you last put pen to paper to write a real love letter? With the advance of technology, so-called snail mail has become a nostalgic pastime. The SA Post Office (SAPO) is encouraging romantic South Africans to use the postal service for Valentine’s Day. “A card or letter for Valentine’s Day is the best possible gift for a loved one some distance away,” says Janras Kotsi, head of Mail Business at the SAPO. “A letter or card sent by a loved one must be one of the best surprises anyone can get.” The SAPO says a letter bearing a stamp has a 50% bigger chance of being opened first (or at all) than one without a stamp. The reason is that it is perceived a person took time and effort to sit down and write it. Kotsi says a card or letter is easy to keep and will not be deleted or lost when a phone is upgraded or a hard disk crash-

es. “It will outlast flowers, it takes up very little storage space and when you reread it years later, it will evoke more memories than any other keepsake.” He adds that mail is more romantic than social media because you can neither spray it with aftershave or perfume nor kiss it with lipstick. Kotsi also points out that a letter makes a particularly affordable gift for Valentine’s Day: “A standard letter costs only R2,65 in postage, but it remains appropriate for Valentine’s Day which focuses on emotion and feeling, not financial value. Customers should make sure they use the right address and postcode, which can be looked up on line at www.postoffice.co.za. “Remember we can create personal memories, strengthen existing relations and even create new relationships by sending someone a personalised card or message for Valentine’s Day.”

Plan to red-light traffic jams TARREN­LEE HABELGAARN

OBEDIENCE to road rules will go some way to easing up traffic congestion during school terms in Pinelands. This is according to ward councillor Brian Watkyns, who adds that in the past pupils may have walked or gone to school on a bicycle, but many now go to school by car. He adds: “In the past schools permitted vehicles to enter the premises to drop off or pick up pupils, but in the interest of overall pupil safety this is no longer allowed which also contributes to the problem.” He points out the real problem is that some parents park as close to the school as possible irrespective of whether this contravenes road regulations. “The red and yellow line markings and no stopping signs are put up either in the interest of road safety or, in some cases, to prevent motorists blocking a neighbour’s driveway.” He adds: “By ignoring the very clear road markings, signs and laws governing where you may stop or park, the driver is jeopardising the safety of both pupils and other road users.” While the safety of school children is important traffic congestion goes beyond causing an inconvenience to residents, he says. Watkyns recalls an instance when an ambulance was seriously delayed in reaching a patient. He says he has received many complaints from residents who experienced similar situations as a direct result of the traffic congestion. “On one occasion a resident was blocked from leaving his premises and missed his flight. I have also had complaints about parents leaving their cars in a neighbour’s driveway,” he says. “Neighbours have also complained about parents being abusive when asked to move.” Watkyns says obedience to the road rules will make a big difference. The problem tends to be worse in the beginning of each year, he says. “Parents who are new to the school often seem oblivious to the fact they are breaking the law – especially in regard to parking on verges.” Some residents have resorted to placing stones on the verges to prevent other vehicles from parking there. Schools in Pinelands are actively trying to assist. “Last year at Pinelands High I had bollard installed as the grassed verge was being turned into a sandy waste. The school con-

Watkyns says Pinehurst Primary is in the process of obtaining permission to extend their street parking. “I have had no complaints about traffic at Pinelands Primary, Cannons Creek or Vista

Nova High.” He adds that at schools where there have been complaints, requests are made for parents not to park illegally when dropping off or collecting pupils. “Such a request was put out (last) week to parents, but the photographs taken the day after the notices were sent shows that some

parents ignored the request.” In an effort to address the increase in complaints, drivers who persist in flouting the law will face the wrath Law Enforcement officials. “The officers will also be checking that those transporting pupils for a fee have the required permits,” he warns.

Peace vs protests

GENERAL

VIOLENT protests about service delivery have in recent months marred the political landscape. People’s Post interns Tarren-Lee Habelgaarn and Luzuko Zini took to the streets and asked readers if the violence is justified or it is a sign of desperation.

DESPERATE: Steve Fraser says while he doesn’t condone violence, when people are hopeless they get desperate. “If people can’t get their point across what other option do they have? Something needs to be done, but it all boils down to education; it allows you to decide what is right and wrong.” Photos: Tarren-Lee Habelgaarn and Luzuko Zini

UNACCEPTABLE: Stirling Damain­Harris says violence is never justified. He thinks people protest when they have come to the end of their patience. At that point, he says, there is no other way but violence. “I feel particularly sorry for the farmworkers who work in rain and sun, but get R50.”

NEVER VIOLENCE: Thelma Harris says vio­ lence should never be an option. She says it is particularly frustrating when protesters don’t think of the inconvenience caused to themselves and others. “If you take the farm orkers: when they go back to work the stuff (property) is broken. It is unfair towards them­ selves and the farmers.”

OTHER MEANS: Zach Simpson believes there are other ways of dealing with the protesters’ concerns. “The violence may be a sign of des­ peration, but there is no need for it. They should use peaceful methods of protest that have served this and other countries well.”

NOT IDEAL: Kay­Leigh Meistre believes pro­ testing is a way for protesters to get attention, but believes violence is not the way. “Protest­ ers need to speak up and voice their concerns instead of being violent. Violence has never solved anything but only makes things worse.”

UNJUST: Andiswa Sam says: “Violence is not the way because it only makes things worse. Violence is not a sign of desperation, but an opportunity (for some people) to ruin what has already been done for them. The only way for­ ward is to address issues in a civilised way.”

ELECT LEADERS: Taariq Samuels says: “That’s their way of getting what they want, but it does not always go their way. Protesters should elect someone who will speak on their behalf to the people, company or government so that things can be resolved in a peaceful way.”

Give in to dress-up craze for good cause TARREN­LEE HABELGAARN

THERE’S no better excuse to give vent to your creative bent than raising funds for hospice. The Hospice Palliative Care Association is appealing to all Capetonians to dress in crazy costumes for the second Lace-up Walk for Cancer. The event takes place on Saturday 2 February at the Old Mutual Sports Field in Pinelands. The fundraisers is the brainchild of Eric Watlington, who has been working for Hospice for many years.

Tuesday 29 January 2013

He says he came up with this idea through his own experiences of cancer and how it affects the patient’s family. “Not everyone is able to deal with a family member who is severely ill and hospice care can help,” he says. “However, it is also important for people to understand that hospice is not a place where people go to die.” Watlington says it is very important to create awareness and educate people on the function of a hospice. “People are referred to a hospice to revitalise them; it is not just a place to go die. That’s the important message we are trying to get across by creating awareness through

walks such as these.” He adds referrals to hospice have to be made by a doctor. “Every patient is different. It depends on the situation as well as the family and then the doctor decides what would be the best plan of action for the patient,” he says. Watlington explains that although people do sometimes leave hospices fully recovered, their main objective with caring for the terminally ill is to let them die with dignity and not in pain. “Our job is to ensure that patients take their medication, eat properly, are bathed and are comfortable. However, not every

patient’s needs are the same.” The association offers community-based care in which they assist people in their own homes. This includes home visits, as well as bathing and feeding, and also wound dressing. They also offer limited in-patient care during which the patient is cared for at one of the hospice facilities. “This walk is just a fun day for people to come out and show their support. We have a best dressed competition as well,” he says. “Although there is no entrance fee to take part, we would appreciate a donation of any amount when registering. You will receive a pair of multi-coloured shoe laces which represent all the different cancers which affect people.”

Vagrancy: vouchers a solution

TARREN­LEE HABELGAARN

RESIDENTS in Newlands are hoping for a speedy solution to address vagrancy in the suburb. One resident, who spoke to People’s Post on condition his name not be used, says he has come across two more hideouts of people sleeping and living rough in Newlands. “Besides the unbelievable mess they (the homeless) cause and leave behind, all of this has health implications for residents,” he says. The resident says his main concerns are centred on the unavailability of ablution facilities and the fact that the homeless scavenge for food in rubbish bins. “Any effort on the part of homeowners to

Quality is our

keep their bins hygienic is undone by vagrants as they rip any bags to pieces and scatter rotting food. I am sick to death of seeing my and surrounding suburbs turned into a rotting rubbish heap.” He says the public hears and reads “ever more hot air waffle” by politicians, counsellors and authorities about new bylaws to curb vagrancy in the suburbs, but “the problem is getting worse each year”. “In the early hours when I put my bin outside for rubbish removal on a Thursday morning, I see ‘troops’ of (people) digging in bins and scattering the contents.” Another resident, Francine Bekker, agreed saying: “Every night when I go for my evening walk, I find a new spot taken over by vagrants. Their latest spot is just pass the Belmont bridge. When will it end?”

game!

Megan Cairns, public relations and volunteer manager at U-turn, says one way the community can make a big difference to improve vagrancy is by not given them money or handouts. “When you are not enabling people to live on the street that is what makes a difference,” says Cairns. She also says people who give vagrants money are providing them with an option to remain on the street by giving them a “free pay cheque”. “We know with homeless people around it could be a nuisance and we empathise with that, but in response we are urging residents to make use of our meal vouchers.” She adds: “Our records show that 72% of vouchers bought are returned to us. So vouchers are working and it puts (the home-

less) people in contact with organisations such as ours which can help them.” Cairns says another positive is the fact that over the past year they have noticed a decrease in the number of people using U-turn’s services. This, she says, is an indicator that less people are needing their services. “It’s not just us,” she says. “Other organisations similar to ours, such as the Haven Night Shelter, who have a decrease in people making use of their services.” Residents can purchase meal tickets at many of the churches and Engen garages in the Claremont Cluster. “By giving people vouchers – and not money – you are making a big difference,” says Cairns. The vouchers are R30 for five.

Post Office headed for revamp TARREN­LEE HABELGAARN

POST office management says persistent vandalism puts the facility in need for an upgrade.

MAKEOVER: The brass frame of the re­post box at Kenilworth Post Office is missing.

Photo: Supplied

 

The post office, on Mains Avenue in Kenilworth, has become rundown over the years and, says ward councillor Ian Iversen, it is due for an overhaul. Iversen says the problem he faces is that he is not dealing with the municipality as the Post Office is responsible for all maintenance upgrades to the property. “Therefore I can’t just send an e-mail requesting certain things to be done,� he says. Martie Gilchrist, of SAPO’s communications division, says there was a “major clean-up� in which trees were trimmed and the exterior cleaned. She says someone will be sent to assess the property and see what needs to be fixed in this week. Iversen adds: “The entrance to the Post Office is looking really grubby – most probably because of the vagrants who eat and drink on the steps.� He points out other problems in need of attention, including replacing the catch to hold back the door. “At the moment they are using a string as a catch to hold the door,� he says. Iversen adds that the supporting iron work along the front of the complex looks as if it has never been washed and the tiled

walkway to the letter boxes needs to be scrubbed. “The copper cover which was around the post box in the wall has been missing for about a year. Grass and weeds are also coming up through the bricks in the parking area,� he adds. Eric Aspeling, manager of the Kenilworth Post Office, says the Post Office is constantly being vandalised and they are always replacing stolen copper and iron. “We reported the (theft of the) brass plate, (which was) on the re-post box, to the police. We have also replaced the hook on the back of the door three times as it is always being stolen,� he says. Aspeling also says they have a problem with vagrants and prostitutes in the area who congregate in front of the Post Office. “They are always dropping things in front of the Post Office and leaving a mess.� He adds: “In the past we never had a need for fencing and gates, but because of the vandalism and having to prevent the homeless from sleeping on our doorstep, we had to add them.� Aspeling says: “The more we replace the things, the more it gets stolen, but we have reported it to our regional office to fix the vandalised items.� Iversen adds: “I plan to be in touch with the Regional Manager of the Post Office and will send him photographs, when asking that funds be allocated for upgrading.�

On your marks for the Met TARREN­LEE HABELGAARN

IT WAS a case of holding thumbs for the luck of the barrier draw for the J&B Met. Jockey Karis Teetan will be riding race favourite Jackson who will be starting out of gate five. The Grade 1 horses took to the track for a gallop at the barrier

draw at the Kenilworth Racecourse. Michael Varney, marketing manager for Western Province Racing, says: “The J&B Met is an iconic event in Cape Town and is aimed at bringing new blood into the sport of racing.” The theme for this year’s event, which takes place on Saturday 2 February, is Made to Fly.

PINELANDS residents are being urged to remain vigilant after an attempted house break-in. On Thursday at 09:00 a Pinelands resident heard a bang at the window while in his bedroom. “He immediately stood up and looked at the window where he noticed an unknown man peeping through a small opening in the window,” says Warrant Officer Thando Sonjica spokesperson for Pinelands police.

More remains unearthed TERESA FISCHER

MYSTERY surrounds the discovery of three more skeletons which have been unearthed inside the Police Museum in Muizenberg. A source, who has seen the remains and refuses to be named, described them as “two bodies in coffins” and “one (skeleton) lying next to the coffin”. Another source says these were removed in “three black buckets” on Wednesday. In December, workers renovating the premises, built in 1910, made the first discovery of a single skeleton. Employees of Bambana Management Services, the company completing the multi-million rand renovations at the museum, said they were not allowed to comment. People’s Post has reliably learnt the remains are believed to date back to post1600, the Colonial era. Brigadier Srini Govender, the police’s section head of corporate communications, said the bones date back many years (“Scientists to verify bones find”, People’s Post, 22 January). Govender would not speculate on the origin of the remains, but said the bones have been sent to an archaelogist for verification. Govender says it is difficult to pinpoint the area where the bones were found, but says the find was made during excavation work undertaken inside the building. He says excavation has been temporarily halted and adds the police is not in a

position to speculate further until more information is made available. Troy Phili, Unit Manager of Burial Grounds and Graves at the South African Heritage Resources Agency (SAHRA), confirmed the matter had come to SAHRA’s attention. Adding the matter is “of a very sensitive nature”, he says detailed information on the history of the burials would be established through further investigation by UCT’s Department of Human Biology. This is also where the remains will be stored prior to consultations and identification of a suitable space for re-burial and commemoration. Phili says, to his knowledge, this is the first such discovery in Muizenberg, compared to the Greenpoint/Prestwich Place area where, he says, the roads and buildings seem to have been built over a large burial plot. He says it remains to be seen whether the discovery at the museum will remain an isolated case or reveal a more widespread burial site. He says the application for a permit for the exhumation of the remains had first been submitted to Heritage Western Cape, which deals with pre-colonial human remains as per agreement with SAHRA. Phili says it was subsequently established the remains were more recent than originally believed and, therefore, the case was referred to SAHRA. The permit will allow for further removals, provided they are not more than 10. He says in such an instance a new per-

mit application would need to be lodged with SAHRA. This would require a public consultation process to ascertain the site’s historical background and the identities and descendants of people buried there, who, in turn, need to give consent for the exhumation, relocation and re-burial of remains. The archaeologist conducting the analysis on the remains was unable to comment at this stage. Phili notes in areas where there had been forced removals, such as Ndabeni, the question is what could have happened to the community cemetery. “There are other incidences where forcefully removed residents came back after the demise of apartheid and found graves having been built on or relocated without any consultations,” Phili says. Peter Harrison, vice-chairperson of the Muizenberg Historical Conservation Society, volunteers at Het Posthuys, which is adjacent to the museum and the oldest standing building on the False Bay coastline. He says the museum, in two sections, consisted of a Magistrate’s Court, complete with cells, and a police station. The police station was previously used as a library and the courthouse as a post office. Harrison would not be drawn to comment about the discovery. Chris Taylor, a specialist on the Battle of Muizenberg (1795), says it is unlikely the remains would be casualties of this battle between the British forces and the De Vereenigde Ost-Indische Compagne (VOC).

I see myself as an ordinary Cape Town girl and to see how my life has turned out makes me very proud.” Lumka Vumendlini (20), who was crowned in November, also attended the opening. Local clothes designer Shakur Olla questioned the way forward for the South African clothing industry. “Many changes still need to be made so that workers in this industry can benefit,” he said at the event opening. “If we rightfully acknowledge our women, they can become absolutely brilliant. If America can cater to a worldwide market, so can we.” The exhibition runs until Tuesday 26 February.

JAZZY: Pedro Espi­Sanchis, Madosini, Johnny Blundell and Hilton Schilder make up the group MadoJazz. Legendary bow player Madosini’s music is said to have an “ancient and mystical beauty about it, which before you know it takes you away to a place of blissful peace and absolute tranquillity”. Madosini’s music embodies the earliest roots of jazz. They play the earliest string (Uhadi musical bow) and wind (Lekgodilo flute) instru­ ments created by humans. The instruments work well with the jazz piano and guitar. Don’t miss the rare opportunity of these musicians playing together at Kalk Bay Theatre on Sunday 3 February. Tickets cost R65 for the show or R180 for the show, cheese platter and a glass of house wine. Book on www.kbt.co.za. Photo: Supplied

Stars shine for Home MUSIC is a language everyone can understand. Add a joke or two and you have a winning combination. This is just what is on offer when funds will be raised for the Douglas Murray Home for the Aged, in Retreat. Following a People’s Post report that the Home is in dire straits, an events company was spurred into action to host a fundraiser called Comedy and Jazz on The Greenz. The event will be held at the Vodacom Golf Driving Range in Rosmead Avenue, Wynberg, on Saturday 2 February. It starts at 19:00 and the cover charge is R100. The artist line-up is enough to make any jazz lover’s mouth water. It includes well-known and much-loved Cape Town jazz musician Richard Ceasar, the sultry Melanie Scholtz, Open Mic Jazz Contest winner Candice Thornton, jazz duo The Ruben Dale Band and all-girl group G-Major. They will be supported by comedians Dalin Oliver, Devon Gray and Calvin Benson who have all been making serious headway on the comedy scene. Fred Daniels, CEO of the Home, says funds have “all but dried up, as the Home struggles to stay afloat”. Established 43 years ago and now home to 90 residents, the Home gets by on a shoestring budget. “Municipal bills are in the region of R30 000 a month and in winter this can skyrocket. This excludes the salaries for the staff, as well as food and other es-

sentials,” says Daniels. He adds the event “may not be able to cover all costs”. While most of the residents need 24-hour, specialised nursing and medical care, the Home’s “biggest challenge is covering staff salaries”. The facility employs 63 staff working on 12-hour shifts a day. “We need professional caregivers and nurses to attend to our residents. In an ideal world we would need one professional nurse for every two residents,” Daniels says. “But the nurses need to be paid up to R12 500 a month. We do not have this kind of money.” Towards the end of last year, the Home’s Board was faced with the challenging decision of downscaling or closing the doors to the facility. It is in light of this that they have embarked on The Save Douglas Murray Home Campaign and this fundraiser forms part of the campaign. The campaign is aimed at galvanising the support of the community and creating awareness to the plight of the Home. “We have received tremendous support since we have been afforded the opportunity to tell our story in the previous article and in various interviews. The reality, however, is that the Home needs this to be ongoing as we still have a long way to go and may find ourselves in the same position sooner than we think if interest in the Home starts to wane.” Call Gregory Sirmongpong on (021) 712 2146 for more details.

Water wonder swims his way to the top LIAM MOSES

A RONDEBOSCH matriculant has proved himself as one of the best young swimmers in the country after returning from an international competition with three medals around his neck. Craig Emslie claimed silver in the 50m and 100m breaststroke events and won gold and helped break an African record in the 4x50m relay at the Zone VI Youth Games in Zambia. Emslie says while he enjoyed winning the medals, the honour of representing South Africa was the highlight of the games. “It’s amazing. All the international meets are very cool. The TV cameras are there and you get support from the crowd,” the Rondebosch Boys’ High School pupil says. “At the opening ceremony you feel so proud to be a South African. The flag raising ceremony was the best part; it was much better than getting the medals.” The tournament was hosted in Lusaka in December and featured athletes from all the countries in southern Africa, including Botswana, Angola, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. It featured swimming, athletics, football, basketball, judo and tennis competitions and saw SA finish at the top of the medal standings with 67 gold, 46 silver and 19 bronze medals. Emslie also won gold in the 50m breaststroke at the last five con-

secutive Junior National Championships and is currently training for the Senior Nationals, which take place in April. The 18-year-old has been swimming from the age of eight, but says he only started taking the sport seriously recently. He aims to make swimming his career and has set his sights on the 2016 Olympic Games. “The team I swim for is the High Performance Team at UWC Swimming Club, earmarked for the 2016 Olympics,” says Emslie. “Our long-term goal is working towards that, while my short-term goal is the Commonwealth Games, coming up in two years. There is also the Junior World Championships at the end of the year, which I am working towards. We also have Nationals in April. Ultimately it’s just building up and climbing the ladder.” His current regimen in the High Performance Squad sees him train at least 10 times a week – twice on some days – and swim around 12km a day, six times a week. Emslie says although the training is tough, he is prepared to put his “head down” and work for his goals. “There is a saying that ‘hard work beats talent if talent doesn’t work hard’. You can have all the talent, but if you don’t work hard you won’t get there,” he says. “Some people don’t understand the training you go through. It takes toll on your body and you just need to push through. The mental ability is what gets you on top.”

Blackpool fall short at home LIAM MOSES

A POOR home track record continued unabated for ASD Salt River Blackpool when they dropped points the fifth time in six matches on Saturday. Blackpool lost 2-1 to Peacemakers at UCT on Saturday, meaning that their home record now stands at four draws, one loss and a solitary win. They have been a completely different side away from home, claiming three victories and a draw in their travels. Dave Waters, the side’s assistant coach, felt his team’s inability to finish off moves was to blame for the defeat. “We started slowly and quite nervously, and then the players started to do what was asked of them,” says Waters. “I felt we eventually came into the game and we were on top from the 15minute mark. We held possession well and created opportunities, but there was a lack of clinicalness in the final third. I am happy with the defensive third and middle third; it’s just the end product that was missing today.” The visitors took the lead in the 15th minute when Tabiso Gwaba fired passed the keeper after being played into the box. Blackpool had a clear-cut opportunity to draw level seven minutes later, when attacking midfielder Brandon Fernandez

pushed into space down the right flank and played in a perfectly-placed ball. Striker Luqmaan Davids soared above his marker to meet the cross, but his header was off target. Fernandez was influential throughout the first-half and he would have tied the scores in the 45th minute, with a closerange strike, if not for an excellent save from the opposition keeper. The cultured attacker had another giltedged chance in the 10th minute of second-half, when Blackpool were awarded a penalty following a handball. However, he skied his shot high above the goal. Fernandez was eventually rewarded for his efforts in the 35th of the secondhalf, when his curling free kick from the edge of the box beat the keeper. Peacemakers refused to settle for the draw and restored their lead the following minute, when Gwaba completed his brace with another low, angled shot from inside the box. The result leaves Blackpool in sixth place on 17 points, while Peacemakers have crept within touching distance of their latest opposition. Only goal difference keeps them in eighth. Waters said his side would spend more time working on their final passes and finishing at training ahead of their encounter against Ida’s Valley FC in Stellenbosch on Friday.

Winning weekend for SA hockey JONATHAN COOK

SOUTH AFRICAN women’s hockey stalward Pietie Coetzee scored two goals to help Investec South Africa to a 2-0 win over Austria in their final World League round two match at Hartleyvale Stadium on Sunday. SA went through to the World League semi-finals on Saturday when they beat Azerbaijan 7-0 and Sunday’s match had no bearing on that outcome. However, the host team still played to win and the result was ensured by two sizzling drag-flick penalty corners from world record goal scorer Coetzee. The first goal came in the 10th minute after Bernie Coston’s pace down the right won South Africa their first penalty corner and Coetzee rifled a flat astro-burner into the bottom of the backboard. Six minutes later it was Shelley Russell’s turn to use her pace and stick-ball control at high speed to outflank her would-be tackler and set up SA’s second penalty corner. Coetzee aimed for the top shelf this time and beat Austrian goalkeeper Jasmin Anderle with ease. The double took Coetzee’s international tally to 258 goals in 258 test matches. Although SA dominated the rest of the match, further successful strikes didn’t materialise. South Africa’s pace on attack was one of the most impressive aspects of their play, and forwards Russell, Coston and Sulette Damons were just three of the frontrunners who burned their markers away. The second team to qualify for the World League semifinals were Belgium, who beat Azerbaijan 1-0 on Sunday. Fixtures for the third round will be announced when all second round fixtures are completed in March. The women in green and gold now focus their attention on the prestigious Investec Challenge, which also involves world number one and 2012 Olympic gold medallists Holland, as well as England and Australia. The Investec Challenge kicks-off at Hartleyvale on Monday 4 February and culminates in the medal matches on Sunday 10 February.
