Mohale, Van Blerk win SA 10km champs

SA half-marathon champion Lucky Mohale led from start to finish in the South African 10km Championships to claim the title in Germiston on Sunday.

Mohale opened up a gap between himself and the rest of the pack at the outset, and did not relinquish his lead at any point in the race.

Defending champion Stephen Mokoka only picked up the pace at the halfway mark after he had a nasty fall. Mokoka broke away from the main pack and left the likes of Kgosi Tsosane, Xolisa Tyali, Richard Mavusa and Elroy Galant in his dust in an attempt to chase down Mohale.
