It's such a dream come true. I was scared of going out too hard, and that's why I was focused on my plan.

Charne Bosman, Comrades 2016 Marathon winner

I always believed that if you want to be at the top, then you give 100% and that's what I did.

Gatebe nabbed two achievements in the annual race, going to break the 'down' record. He who went on to do push-ups after the finish line.

My aim was to break the record because I told my training partners what I was going to do.
