Olympic and Commonwealth Games medalist Henri Schoeman has joined the growing roster of MANA Sports & Entertainment Group athletes.
Schoeman has won for South Africa a bronze medal at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games and gold at the 2018 Commonwealth Games. He is also the top-ranked triathlete in Africa and is a member of the elite Bahrain Endurance 13 team.
He says: “I am excited to announce that I will be moving into the next phase of my career with MANA, an agency aligned with my goals within the sport as well as afterwards. I look forward to building a future that I can count on.”
Fellow MANA athlete Magnus Ditlev took third place at Challenge Peguera-Mallorca over the weekend, backing up from winning the inaugural Challenge Budva-Montenegro the week prior. Ditlev’s win in Montenegro was reinstated 48 hours after he was initially disqualified due to “unintentional course cutting” when a marshal led him off-course. After Ditlev and MANA launched a protest, Challenge Family investigated further, leading to an official reversal of the disqualification and an implementation of a five-minute time penalty.
The statement from Challenge Family said: “The action was reduced in acknowledgment of the part the race organization played in misdirecting Ditlev, for which Challenge Family and Challenge Budva-Montenegro has apologized, with a commitment to put more robust procedures in place to ensure this is not repeated. Ditlev retains his place as the inaugural Challenge Budva-Montenegro champion with a time of 3:46:29 with Patrick Lange in second (3:48:21) and Ruedi Wild in third (3:50:43).”
