Michael is an Ironman and was a hotshot runner in his youth – he boasts a PB of 30:03 for a 10k! He’s extremely passionate about lifestyle sports events, particularly athletics, mountain biking and triathlon. He has managed and coached some of SA’s best track and field athletes and was fortunate to be a part of multiple Olympic Games, World Athletics Championships, the major city marathons, as well as some of the world’s leading endurance events. His favourite athletes remain Lasse Viren, the four time Olympic gold medallist from Finland, and Carl Lewis. Michael inherently believes it’s not how far you run, but how fast you run the distance.
