Diamond League action for SA trio in Birmingham

Three South African athletes will compete at the 12th of 14 legs in the IAAF Diamond League series in Birmingham, England on Sunday.

Ruswahl Samaai, who secured the bronze medal in the long jump at the recent IAAF World Championships in London, and fellow long jumper Khotso Mokoena are in the start lists for their specialist discipline.

While world champion Luvo Manyonga will not take part, the two will face a formidable Diamond League challenge, with all nine men in the field having leaped beyond eight metres this season.

On the track, amputee sprinter and Paralympian silver medallist Ntando Mahlangu will turn out in the T42 200m Men’s sprint as the teenage prodigy aims to upset his senior opponents in the half-lap dash.

The action will be screened on SuperSport 8.

14:31pm: Ruswahl Samaai, Khotso Mokoena (long jump)
15:42pm: Ntando Mahlangu (200m T42)
