Al­bon all set to en­dure for R14m

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - Sport -

Bri­tish en­durance ath­lete Jonathan Al­bon could be $1m (about R14m) richer by Sun­day – all he has to do is win a 24-hour race, cover at least 160km and con­quer dozens of ob­sta­cles.

The 29-year-old has a shot at the huge cash bonus af­ter win­ning the Spar­tan World Cham­pi­onship in the US and the Spar­tan Tri­fecta World Cham­pi­onship in Greece. That leaves the Spar­tan Ul­tra World Cham­pi­onship in Ice­land.

“The most chal­leng­ing thing is the head­lamp – it gives you a headache,” he said. “Al­though that could be eas­ily cured by win­ning the bonus.”
