Students seek their slice

National 400-metres hurdles record-holder LJ van Zyl is one step away from pocketing the R200┬á000 Yellow Pages Pot of Gold cheque, but SA’s top students will be looking to make him share the cash at the Yellow Pages SA Student Championships in Stellenbosch on Friday and Saturday.
To date, only 10 South African athletes have posted qualifying performances to stand in line to compete at the World Student Championships which take place in Shenshzen, China from 12-24 August, and with the international cut off date of 28 May┬á looming, the action at Coetzenburg should be of high quality.
Lionel Smith, Trudon GM: Marketing (Publishers of Yellow Pages) said that the 2011 Yellow Pages track and field season has been one of the best in the sponsor’s six year involvement with the sport.
ÔÇ£The athletes have really come to the party during the Yellow Pages events this year and with the stakes high as far as qualifying for the World Student Championships is concerned, LJ van Zyl may yet be forced to share the Pot of Gold cash before the season ends this weekend,ÔÇØ said Smith.
The Yellow Pages Pot of Gold money is split between athletes who set national senior records at the Yellow Pages sponsored events this season.
To date only Van Zyl (47.66sec in the 400m hurdles at the Yellow Pages Series in Tshwane in February) has been able to set a national senior best in 2011.
