London Olympians Stephen Mokoka and Ren├® Kalmer spearhead Team South Africa at the World Half-marathon championships in Bulgaria on Saturday, writes Mark Etheridge.
A team of six will do duty for South Africa in the city of Kavarna.
Joining Mokoka in a three-strong men’s line-up are Lucky Mohale and Gladwin Mzazi while Kalmer will be joined by her younger sister Christine, as well as Nolene Conrad.
Mokoka and Kalmer both ran the Olympic Marathon in London, and neither has been idle since their return.
The former won the SA half-marathon championships in Cape Town with a personal best 60min 57sec while Kalmer took sixth spot in the star-studded Great North Run half-marathon in Newcastle. She clocked 70:13 in the northern English city.
Mohale and Mzazi ended second and third behind Mokoka in Cape Town while Christine Kalmer and Conrad were second and third behind Rene at the national half-marathon championships.
