Also in this years Classic Shootout will be the gutsy wild-cart Tian Basson.

400 – 48.6
600 – 1:18.30
800 – 1:48.75

Basson made the move to Nelspruit after school to train with Folavio Sehohle, Samson Ngoepe and William Mthosola and has never looked back ever since. Last year he palmed in the bronze medal at u/23 SA’s with his 800m pb and in 2014 he made Senior SA’s final being only 19.

Basson will surely come with no fear to once again try and prove he is worthy of running with the best and almost similar to Steve Prefontein will be sure to make it a pure guts race.

Do you think Basson will take the title this year?
