Munyai SA record caps great month for Agency clients on the track

18 year old Olympian Clarence Munyai provided a glimpse into his potential this month when he became the first South African junior to dip under the 33 second barrier over 300m and thereby setting a new SA record of 32.87s. He followed this up with a 10.28 second PB over the 100m suggesting an exciting season ahead for the young sprinter.

Maunyai’s training partner, 21 year old Thando Roto also showed fine form in the 100m sprint event by running a wind assisted 9.98s in a league meeting in Johannesburg. If not for the wind Roto would have become only the 5th South African to dip under the 10 second mark. “It was still amazing to finish a race and see that I have managed to dip under ten seconds. I now know that on any good day I will be able to do so again,” he said.
