Gauteng track and field in full swing


Central Gauteng Athletics hosted the third league meeting of the season on Saturday, 10 October 2015, at Germiston stadium.

The meeting was well attended by mostly the Sub Youth athletes who are preparing for the Inter Provincials Championships at the end of November 2015.
