SASSU 2006 Climbing Comp

Postby FastestHamster » Wed Jul 05, 2006 7:22 pm

Monday and Tuesday saw 6 unversities battling it out on the climbing walls at The Barn in Pretoria.
Wits (University of the Witwatersrand)
Tuks (University of Pretoria)
Durbs (University of KwaZulu-Natal)
Pukke (University of the Free State)
UJ (University of Johannesburg)
Rhodes (Rhodes University)
Cape Town was notable by their abscence. Last year they slaughtered us, so with them out of the way, things were looking up. This year Wits organised the competition, and Kelly, the Wits chairman, was amazing in sorting and delegating so that the competition ran smoothly and was a success.
So placings for the ladies:
1. Dominique Dix-Peek (Wits)
2. Kyla (?)
3. Rochelle (UKZN)
4. Sharifa Modise (Wits)

And for the men:
1. Mathieu (Not sure how to spell the surname?)
2. Dave Richardson (UKZN)
3. Andrew Dix-Peek (Wits)
4. Kaas & Arno (Tie)

If anyone know surnames and varsities let me know! Overall Wits won, due to the large number of us :lol: But seriously, since so many Witsies made it to semi's (in the men's and women's divisions) we had a lot more points.

There are some vids in the process of being posted to my blog, just click the link below
