Lions make Zimbabwe mountain bike rider pedal faster

Not all countries have the most ideal facilities to train at. Some African swimmers have to train at hotel pools. For Antipass Kwari from Zimbabwe, he uses game trails to train for mountain biking.

“We follow game trails, or very often the native people walking through the area will have a path from one village to the next village,” said Kwari’s coach, Wayne Davidson.

“Elephants make paths for themselves, 6-foot-wide, perfect for training. You can bump into one, and that’s dangerous.”

“One time there was a lion. (It) really made me go faster,” Kwari said.
