Cape Town - The South African Institute of
Chartered Accountants (SAICA) has congratulated Caroline Wostmann on being the
first woman over the line of the 2015 Two Oceans Marathon.
Chartered Accountant South Africa [(CA)SA] completed the 56km ultra marathon
in a time of 03:41:23 and was the first South African woman to clinch the title
in 14 years.
Wostmann resides in Pretoria and is a
lecturer in finance and management accounting at Wits University.
“I trained on my own, but after I did
so well in the Comrades last year, I
decided to take it more seriously, and engaged Lindsey Parry from the High
Performance Centre (HPC) in Pretoria as a coach,” she says.
Chantyl Mulder, Executive Director:
Nation Building at SAICA, who also enjoys running as a sport, was ecstatic about
“Caroline is a shining example of how versatile our members
are. Sport is one of the avenues that help to build a nation, and her
achievement epitomises what nation building in our profession is all about.
SAICA is proud to have such a valuable member in its fold - someone who also embodies
the SAICA tenet of responsible leadership. I am sure that this quality will be
handed down to her students,” says Mulder.
