Sam Blinston competed in the above event over the weekend.

It was a tremendous event held at the Bestmed Athletics Stadium in Pretoria, attended by several hundred athletes from across South Africa aged from 7 to 19.

Events ranged from 60m sprints up to 3000m and included filed events such as long jump, high jump, javelin, shot put and discuss.

Sam attended representing his club here, Amen Academy. Two other athletes also accompanied him, both aged 18 thus they competed in the older under 19 category.

Sam got a gold medal for the 60m sprint and was narrowly beaten in the 80m and long jump, picking up silver in each of these. He is happy now but was disappointed on the day to be beaten.

The older boys picked up a gold, silver and bronze. So three Zim athletes picked up six medals from seven events.
