 Nikki Viljoen, Marketing Executive at Mr Price Sport, says,

“Mr Price Sport is delighted with the results of our inaugural BlogOlympics! It was a thoroughly enjoyable day and it was great to meet the bloggers who write about South Africa’s sporting events and heroes. We were very excited to see that the BlogOlympics (#BlogO13) was trending on Twitter before the games had even begun yesterday.”

Moses Mabhida Stadium, Tsogo Sun, East Coast Radio, VW Hoopers , 32Gi, Australian Gold Sun Care, Durban’s Spiga d’Oro restaurant and Uber all played massive roles in providing services and products for the BlogOlympics event.

Viljoen concludes,

“With Moses Mabhida Stadium’s magnificent arch forming the backdrop for the day’s events and Durban delivering a beautiful hot day, the vibe at the Mr Price Sport BlogOlympics was fantastic. East Coast Radio’s Jane Linley-Thomas’s live broadcast added to the hype and fun at People’s Park for the afternoon session. A great day like yesterday affirmed what we at Mr Price Sport all believe that sport and exercise are so important for the mind and the body, but that an element of fun should always be present. We look forward to planning the 2014 BlogOlympics and keeping the games going!”
