The final team consists of 13 men and 18 women who will compete against squads from various Southern African countries.

Johan Grobler and Jo-Ane van Dyk, who both bagged silver medals at the IAAF World Junior Championships in Bydgoszcz last year, will lead the SA contingent.

“A relatively inexperienced but talented team has been selected in order to give some of our younger athletes a chance to gain valuable experience at international level,” said ASA President, Aleck Skhosana.

“We hope this meeting will offer these athletes a big step forward in their careers and earn their places among the country’s most successful Track and Field stars.”
