Stephen Muzhingi partners with FedGroup in Pursuit of Ultimate Achievement

(Comrades Marathon Champion 2009,2010,2011. Two Oceans Champion 2012, and multiple Gold Medalist in both events)

Ultra Marathon running legend, Stephen Muzhingi is back to his best and in pursuit of the ultimate achievement in South African road running – to be the champion of the Two Oceans Ultra (56km) and Comrades Marathon (89 km) in the same year. Although an almost impossible feat, Stephen’s 2011 Comrades victory and 2012 Two Oceans title proves that he has the legs capable to achieve this milestone.

Stephen has remarked that he stood every chance in 2012 to achieve the milestone, but unfortunately due to personal issues the day prior to Comrades 2012, was not able to defend his Comrades “Down” run title. Despite losing out to the title, Stephen still managed to achieve a gold medal, displaying signs of a true champion.
Stephen is not alone in his quest for the dual-championship title. South Africa’s largest independent financial services group, FedGroup have climbed on board to assist Stephen in achieving his goals and furthering his career.

According to FedGroup Marketing Executive Brett Field, the Group’s partnership with a champion athlete like Stephen is a perfect fit. “Central to our fresh approach to Life, is investing in talent. Stephen’s passion as well as his values of determination and ambition is synonymous with the values held by FedGroup. Through our sponsorship, we aim to support Stephen’s development into an iconic athlete”.

A market leader within the industry, FedGroup offers an innovative range of employee benefits, individual benefits and property services. Their commitment to investing in talent is not limited to Stephen, as they serve as the main sponsor to dynamic professional mountain bike team, FedGroup-Itec.

When asked for comment, Stephen Muzhingi stated, “I had a difficult second half of 2012 but I am very excited for 2013 and am hungry for good results. I am extremely thankful and humbled by the support that is being offered to me by FedGroup and I am sure to do my best and to make them proud. It is not every day that you are offered such great support and opportunities in the running business so I am sure to give of my very best in 2013. I wish to thank everyone involved in making this happen as I can now run with an easy mind in 2013.
