Labeled a Cheat, but He Has a Story | Alternative Sports | Scoop.it
Don Ramos, who holds several weight-lifting world records for his age group, has had a Forrest Gumpian odyssey, 80 years of life that were nullified by one drug test.
Fabio's Tut Group's insight:

Weight lifting is still a popular sport in South Africa and is growing due to our image obsessed culture. This piece is interesting not only because the weight-lifter is older, but because it deals with issues of cheating in the sport, which is not uncommon in SA where steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs are common place in gyms. - Chelsea Haith

Hansa Fish records broken by McGregor and van der Walt - Go Multi magazine | Alternative Sports | Scoop.it
A fourth successive victory for Durban Duo McGregor and van der Walt at the Hansa Fish River Canoe Marathon.
Fabio's Tut Group's insight:

Canoeing is a tough sport that tends to be under valorised because it is often associated with being a hobby sport rather than a serious competitive one. This article is about Fish, a South African competition, which localises the sport and makes it's more relevant and newsworthy in this environment. - Chelsea Haith

Fabio's Tut Group's insight:

This is interesting given gender inequalities in many alternative sports, many people still feel that certain sports are not suitable for women given the conditions they are practiced under. This bucks that system by disregarding the issue of gender all together. - Chelsea Haith
