BRUINTJIES BREAKS SA 100M RECORD
Henricho Bruintjies set a new South African record in the 100m sprint on Sunday.
The 21-year-old speedster from Tuks charged to victory in 9.97 seconds at the Resisprint International meeting in Switzerland.
He crossed the line 0.14 clear of Cayman Islands sprinter Kemar Hyman, who took second place.
Bruintjies chopped 0.09 off his personal best, set in Prague last month, and clipped 0.01 off the previous national record of 9.98 set by Simon Magakwe at the SA Championships in Pretoria last year.
