Boasting three events in 2021 the action of South Africa’s most exhilarating schools’ athletics meeting, the PUMA School of Speed Series, will kick off at Dal Josaphat Athletics Stadium (Paarl) on Saturday 30 October 2021.

Headed by the World’s Fastest Man, Usain Bolt, the PUMA School of Speed Series was launched in 2016 with the goal of identifying exceptional young South African athletes who believe that their future is #ForeverFaster.

“After 18 months of very little to no competition, SA’s junior track & field stars are hungry to compete and we are excited to give these athletes three action-packed events to look forward to,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports.  “The PUMA School of Speed’s goal is to identify South Africa’s exceptional young talent.  In order to be the best, you need to compete against the best.  The PUMA School of Speed #1 will take place at Dal Josaphat Athletics Stadium (Paarl) on Saturday 30 October 2021.  Track & field stars can look forward to experiencing competition of the highest quality at a world-class event.”

“We are excited for the action of the 2021 PUMA School of Speed Series to get underway,” says PUMA Marketing Director Brett Bellinger.  “If past events are anything to go by, we look forward to witnessing track & field competition of the highest standard at the 2021 Series.  The energy experienced at the PUMA School of Speed Meets is electric to say the least.  We are proud to help grow this sensational sport in South Africa and can’t wait to see SA’s junior track & field stars in action ready to prove that their future is #ForeverFaster.”
