Bianca powers to maiden Berg title

Bianca Beavitt, sponsored by the Century City Property Owners’ Association, was the runaway winner of the women’s race in the 2015 Berg River Canoe Marathon which ended on Saturday. Bianca Beavitt kept a firm grip on the women’s race from the outset and the determined competitor charged in to Velddrif unchallenged to claim her maiden Berg title.

“It’s amazing to get to the end and see everyone’s smiles of relief!” said Beavitt. “Coming towards the finish line I just kept saying to myself ‘Don’t cry, don’t cry!’ but it really is such an amazing feeling to be here and to win my first Berg title.

“I feel a bit battered and bruised after these four very long, tough days and I’m definitely booking a massage for this week!” she laughed after  finishing 24th overall.
Well done Bianca. You have made us all very proud!!!
