BY MARC JACOBSON - FEBRUARY 18, 2016

Saskia Wait, Grade 9 learner from Hoërskool DF Malherbe, has broken yet another record at the PE High Schools meeting on Tuesday.

She broke the record for the girls’ u15 200m sprint, of which the PE High Schools’ record was 26.10 seconds.

Saskia completed the race in an astonishing 25.60 seconds, also breaking her previous personal record of 26.15 seconds, which she set at the DF Malherbe annual Athletics Day almost a month ago.
