Claude Moshiywa, 2010 to 2013 – how he did it! @ComradesRace Pictures + Videos

by on June 7, 2013

A tribute to the man who did not give up, CLaude Moshiywa was going to make the title “Comrades Champion” his own, no matter what! Here we look briefly at his steps from 2010 to his magnificent win in 2013.

In 2010 I was introduced to Claude Moshiywa as he came on board under Craig Fry’s management and as his exclusive worldwide agent.  Back then he was running for Mr Price, as I recall, I missed the hands-on activity at 2010 Comrades Marathon but still have many images of he and Stephen running very closely together.

From the beginning of 2011 started the early Saturday morning training runs with Claude, most of which I did not go on, but he trained with other top South African marathoners, who have gone on to win several prestigious races, and have also gone from strength to strength, both here and internationally.

Filming early morning training runs was part and parcel of what Craig does with the athletes, he checks their times, speeds, and they work together to know what is needed and when it is needed during their ultra long sessions.

  1. Claudes win on Sunday has been on the cards for a few years now, and it was merely a matter of time until he won. There was never a doubt that he would win Comrades it was just when he will win. A dedicated and committed man in every respect. Running is funny, as in 2011 I would have been happy with a top 10 for Claude but he surprised all by coming 3rd and in 2012 I really felt he had the goods to win. But as they say in sport it has to all come together on the day and in 2013 it certainly did for Claude. Each year he has improved on position and if not position has improved on his finishing time, so a win was certainly in his mind throughout his preparations for this years race.

    I am really proud and happy for Claude and have no doubt that he will definitely be aiming for the Down Run title in 2014.
