A 37-member preliminary team was announced by Athletics South Africa on Thursday for the World Under-20 Championships in Bydgoszcz, Poland in July.
The squad included world youth discus throw champion Werner Visser, as well as speedsters Taylon Bieldt (100m hurdles) and Niki Marich (400m), who formed part of the mixed 4x400m relay team that earned silver at the global U-18 showpiece in Cali, Colombia last year.
“Relay teams will be selected after the ASA Night Series (relay meeting) that will take place on May 24 in Polokwane,” the national federation told its members in a statement.
