In the boys under 15 category Tiaan Swanepoel threw the javelin an amazing 71.37m, which is a new South African record (boys u15).

In the youth category (under 17), Morné Moolman and Jeandré Slabbert's battle continued with Moolman's triumph with 73.51m and Slabbert took second place with 69.99m.

The top performance by Western Cape athlete Tiaan Swanepoel was the overall top achievement of the meeting.
