Making their #SwimRun debut at the 2018 Torpedo Wild and finishing on the podium, @keegscooke, partnering with brother Jarryd are hungry to reach the top step at Cape.
After taking a wrong turn at Wild (following an incorrect arrow) they showed true sportsmanship and finished strong, making up time to the podium.
Their dominant performance at the Prologue shows that they have the speed and talent to win Cape. They are also comfortable in the rough ocean. Definitely, a team to watch and tipped to be the early Cape leaders.
What is Torpedo SwimRun and who are the #pioneers –
Originating in Sweden, this new sport ditches triathlon’s flashy gear for off-road and open-water adventure. Raced along coastal and inland waterways, the route is designed around the natural environment with distances varying from race to race. With multiple swim and run segments and athletes racing self-sufficiently – they swim and run in the same gear – it’s the wildest sport going.
Growing rapidly in popularity, there are now 450 races around the globe. Torpedo launched the first SwimRun in Cape Town in 2017, with a national Series rolling out from 2018.
The #pioneers are top athletes from other sporting disciplines that are leading the charge in this new sport
