Davids, Zazini shine on Day One of Twizza ASA U18 and U20 Track & Field Championships
Global champions Luke Davids and Sokwakhana “Soks” Zazini lived up to the hype on Thursday (28 March 2019) securing national titles in their specialist events on the opening day of the Twizza ASA U18 and U20 Track & Field Championships at the Dal Josaphat Athletics Stadium in Paarl.
Zazini (runner 387), meanwhile, was in dominant form in the junior men’s 400m hurdles final. Having won the world youth and junior titles in 2017 and 2018, Zazini was expected to steal the show on home soil, and while he did not display his best form, he won comfortably in 50.72.
