SAWF Junior Wrestling Team Taking On Africa

The junior team departs on the 3rd of February to Algeria where they will be taking on the rest of Africa in a tough Continental Championships.

The team is made up of a good mixture of youth and experience with current cadet continental champions Fernando Booysen and Arno van Zilj joining their junior team mates Machiel Grobler and Steyn de Lange to see if they can repeat last year’s performance and come home with the gold medals.

Young Booysen already has 3 cadet gold medals to his name and is competing in the tough 57kg weight to try and make it four in a row.

The team is accompanied by coaches Kurt Herzog and Rassie Erasmus, with Lizzy de Wet making sure everything runs smoothly as team manager.
