SA women paving the road to half-marathon podium

South Africa has a rich history at the World Half-Marathon Championships, and while the medals dried up a long time ago, local road runners are back on the rise.

Not that this means the country’s top women are now going to be raking in medals, with the world record having been taken under 1:03:00 last year, but the performances of Scott-Efurd and Xaba indicate that a rare podium will be on the cards if they team up at the World Half-Marathon Championships in Yangzhou in November.

It’s unclear at this stage whether Scott-Efurd will compete at the biennial showpiece, but if she does, it will offer a chance for a breakthrough in the team competition.South Africa has a rich history at the World Half-Marathon Championships, but the medals dried up a long time ago.

It’s unclear at this stage whether Scott-Efurd will compete at the biennial showpiece, but if she does, it will offer a chance for a breakthrough in the team competition. South Africa has a rich history at the World Half-Marathon Championships, but the medals dried up a long time ago. The loan is to assist the government with its Covid-19 response and is in line with the World Bank’s crisis response approach aimed at protecting lives, livelihoods and supporting a more inclusive and resilient growth path. Between 1994 and 1999, led by former world record holder Elana Meyer and gutsy front-runner Hendrick Ramaala, South Africa secured four medals in the individual men’s and women’s races and three medals in the team events. “Preparation is key – in particular for exposed sectors such as retail,” said Thusang Mahlangu AGCS CEO in South Africa. However, in the 16 editions of the World Half-Marathon Championships held since the turn of the century, the SA team have not returned to the podium. “It will assist in addressing the immediate challenge of financing critical health and social safety net programmes whilst also continuing to develop our economic reform agenda to build back better,” he said.

To cater for all sectors and recognise that not all companies have sufficient cash flow to face an additional tax burden in the first year they become profitable, the TLAA imposes a R1 million threshold beyond which the restriction applies.

Even at her best, without much experience over the distance, it might be a bit much to suggest Scott-Efurd will turn out as a medal contender in the individual contest if she runs in Yangzhou, but her presence alongside Xaba could put the SA squad in contention for the team competition. With three athletes to count, they will need support, but the likes of Gerda Steyn and Irvette van Zyl have the ability and the experience to back them up in a long-awaited medal attempt.
