And a little something extra …

Akani Simbine Classic shoot-out powered by Curro

Since Akani Simbine launched the Classic Shoot-Out event 13 years ago, with the goal of making heroes of South African athletes. At this event we will be bringing together national and international athletes, as well as world-record holders and Olympians, who will participate in a mini-event of only a handful of athletics codes. This event, which will start after the opening ceremony, will show our learners what awaits them in a professional athletics future.

Also, these professional athletes will attempt to break some new world records or South African records, so the stakes are high with a sizeable prize pool at the ready. These results will even count to their official national or world rankings. Come witness the excitement at the Curro Podium grand finale!
