Cape Town skater, Jean Marc Johannes, has had an up down few years and now he comes back home with the Gold Medal at the FISE World Amateur event, making for a great end to the year. Jean Marc flew the flag for South Africa from day 1, qualifying in 1st place with a run of 89 points, before taking out the final, with the run below, for an 85 score and the Gold Medal. Well done dude and hope to see you continuing the winning streak.
She is one of South Africa’s top action athletes and has competed around the world for her country. On top of that she is a super rad human and rather good looking! All in all, Melissa Coleburn is a great ambassador for SA Sport. Check her out as she destroys the Blue Rock cable park in Somerset West.
I have always been fascinated by flying and especially the type of flying that Glen Dell was best at. To watch the man fly was an inspiration. To meet him was to meet a gentleman, a patriot and one of the most out on the edge men in the world. To be able to go and fly with Glen was right on top of my bucket list and unfortunately for myself and I am sure many more of his fans, that day will never come. We always talk about how we who live on the edge and push the boundaries of what is possible also put ourselves in danger, but I don’t think Glen would have considered what he did dangerous. I think he would have called what he did life!
You were one of my heros Glen and I salute you!
RIP Glen Dell – 1962-2013
