BONUS - RUSTENBURG - Former Grand Prix Champion Glenrose Xaba (Boxer) dug deep in the closing stages of the race on Sunday, producing a late kick to stun her opposition as she stormed to victory at the opening leg of the Spar Grand Prix 10km series in Cape Town. 
After taking the lead around the halfway mark, Xaba slipped off the pace with less than two kilometres remaining, with Ethiopian teenager Diniya Kedir Abaraya (Nedbank) opening a gap, but the South African star clawed her way back to move clear again, crossing the finish line in 32:17.

Abaraya held on to finish second in 32:24, with compatriot Getenesh Agafaw (Nedbank) taking third place in 33:02. Xaba, who became the first South African athlete in five years to win a Spar Grand Prix race, was delighted with her result, which was made evident by her emotional celebration at the finish. 
With four races left in the 2024 campaign, the 29-year-old distance runner took the early lead in the popular annual series as she looked to reclaim the overall title she secured in 2018.
