I was fortunate to do the medical cover at this years Sports Illustrated “Ruff Stuff” Challenge held at Sun International’s Swazi Sun in Swaziland the last 3 days. The challenge is an annual event hosted by the magazine Sports Illustrated, sponsored by Toyota for the last 11 years. Approximately 3000 entries, eventually widdled down to 4 finalists are teamed up with 4 Sports Stars and are given many grueling tasks and challenges to eventually come out with a winner.

The prize, a Toyota Fortuna!

what a great few days I had. I have had this much fun in a long time. I will over, the next few blogs, show all we did and the fun involved. I will however not name the contestants nor mention who won as I believe that the magazine’s duty.

So for now, here’s a taste…

Me with Former Protea Cricket Captain Shaun Pollock and Former Springbok Rugby captain Corne Krige. Really great guys, I thoroughly enjoyed chatting with them.

The contestants with Sports stars Shaun Bartlett and Mark Williams (Former Bafana Bafana stars) and “Polly” and Corne

there were 4 Fortuna’s, which each pairing drove in and completed certain challenges and off-road travelling in.

The host was Mark Bayly, from Survivor
