Paarl – Rising shot put star Mine de Klerk stole the show with a spectacular record-breaking performance on Wednesday, as the TWIZZA ASA Age Category T&F (u16-u20) Championships 2021 got under way at Dal Josaphat Athletics Stadium in Paarl.

De Klerk’s best effort landed at 17.25m* in the women’s U20 shot put final, shattering the previous South African record of 16.95m which had been held by Simone du Toit for nearly 15 years.
 
 
She was in such good form that De Klerk beat former African Youth Games champion Dane Roets by more than two metres, with Roets taking the silver medal (15.35m).
“Congratulations to Mine de Klerk for her outstanding achievement in breaking such a long standing record and winning the gold medal,” said Aleck Skhosana, the President of Athletics South Africa.
 
“We are particularly happy to see her as champion as we hope this will inspire other young women to take up this highly specialised event.

“It’s a good start to the championship and we believe the best is yet to come despite the background that Covid pandemic derailed many athletes young and older.
