Also the best and most inaccurate interview write up that was published in a national newspaper can be seen below:

 Stewart Bicknose a UK national who just moved to Seychelles in January, told SNA that he really had a good time in spite of the hot weather.

“My wife and I did the 10 km marathon and it was great. For sure we will be back again next year and maybe attempt the half marathon, we will train for that,” said Bicknose.DSC_0960
