Great turnout this past Saturday, 12 March 2016 at the Central Gauteng Athletics Sub-Youth, Youth, Junior and Under 23 championships hosted at Germiston Stadium. The stadium filled up in the early hours of the day by spectators and athletes determined to perform to their utmost best to make the provincial team which will be competing later this month at the National championships.
Exceptional performances by CGA’s top athletes in both track and field including the new kid on the block who has done remarkably well for himself in 100m and long jump Cheswell Johnson (19), He has recently moved to UJ Athletics Club from Alberton Athletics club having been in the athletics fraternity in less than a year.
