Mbanjwa determined to win Dusi in a K1 this time round

DUSI icon Michael Mbanjwa will start The Unlimited Dusi next week desperate to add a K1 victory in the famous three-day canoe marathon to go with his ground-breaking victory in the K2 race three years ago.
 Mbanjwa, 27, who was born and raised in the Valley of a Thousand Hills and learnt to paddle under Robert Lembethe at Nagle Dam, raced himself into South African sporting folklore when he partnered Martin Dreyer to become the first black paddler to win the coveted Dusi title in 2008.
 Now Mbanjwa, whose paddling talent has seen him settle as a professional paddler and coach in Gauteng, is anxious to win a K1 edition of The Unlimited Dusi to entrench his status among the best of the Dusi champions.
 “I have to win the K1 title,” said Mbanjwa firmly.
“Yes, I won the K2 race with Martin Dreyer, but now I have to prove to everyone I can stand up on my own and win the singles title. I am not going to give up until I have won the K1 Dusi.” – Sapa
