CGA Youth and Junior Championships 2017

Central Gauteng Athletics Track and Field Commission would be hosting the 2017 CGA Youth and Junior Championships this weekend, Saturday 4 March 2017 at Germiston Stadium.
Central Gauteng Athletics has partnered with JM Busha Investment Group, an investment company based in Hyde park- Johannesburg for a 3 year term.  The group has sponsored a total of R 200 000 towards the 2017 Track and Field season. The funds will assist towards ensuring that the standard of our track and field are improved and assist towards transport provision for the disadvantaged areas amongst other technical aspects. These are great news for the development discipline of Track and Field and we hope that this partnership will go a long way in assisting the province to produce world class track and field athletes building up to 2020 Olympic Games and 2022 Commonwealth Games.
