Dominique D’Oliveira will be the competitor to beat in the women’s category of the Fedhealth IMPI Elite Race #4 at the picturesque Wiesenhof Wildlife Park, Stellenbosch, Western Cape on Saturday, 17 November 2018.

“It’s the people, the vibe and the beautiful scenery that attracts me to the Fedhealth IMPI Challenge,” says D’Oliveira.  “Personally I prefer obstacle courses that require less running and feature tougher obstacles.  I am, however, learning to embrace the challenge of a tough running route. It can only make me stronger.  The Wiesenhof Wildlife Park is an absolutely stunning venue and I’m looking forward to the views from the top.  I love any obstacle that involves hanging and/or swinging, challenging my grip strength.  The IMPI Challenge’s Lily Pads are pretty fun too.”

“I love the Rawson Wall,” continues D’Oliveira.  “It’s a signature IMPI Challenge obstacle that requires a balanced combination of strength and skill.  In the Elite Race we need to overcome this obstacle without outside assistance, but if you’re competing as part of a team, teamwork is the way to go.  The obstacle that I struggle with the most is definitely the hills.  My goal will be to have the maximum amount of fun, to glorify God, and to push myself as hard as my body will allow.”
