Kovsie sprinters on their way to Kazan, Russia

19 June 2013

We are proud of the inclusion of four Kovsie athletes in the SA Student team for the World Student Games.

Wayde van Niekerk (400 m and 4x400 relay), Gideon Trotter (200 m and 4x100 relay), Rynardt van Rensburg (800 m) and Dumisani Hlaselo (1500 m and 5000 m) will compete in Kazan, Russia, from 6 to 17 July 2013.

At this stage, Wayde and Rynardt are participating abroad. On 12 June 2013 Wayde won his first foreign race in Dakar, Senegal, in a time of 46.45.

Rynardt recently took part in two 800 m races. On 4 June 2013 he was fourth in Velenje, Slovakia, in a time of 1:47.51 and on 8 June he ended in the fifth place in Torino, Italy, in a time of 1:48.69.

Danel Prinsloo is a non-travelling reserve in the 800 m for the SA Students’ team.
