The competition is the last opportunity for athletes to get ranked in the top 10.

Currently, seven athletes have posted performance that achieved the minimum IAAF scores of 1000 or better.

The rankings are topped by Ernst Narib with 1073, closely followed by Mahmad Bock with 1050 with performances in the 400m and Sandro Diergaardt in 3rd with a score of 1045 achieved in the long jump.

The competition will start at 14h00 on the 18 May at the Independence Stadium in Olympia.
