The development camp was held at Stellenbosch from 26 June - 2 July. Twenty eight athletes all around  South Africa joined the camp. They did various kinds of sport specific tests and also gym and track exercises. They had some of the high performance athletes like Hilton Langenhoven and Arnu Fourie sharing their stories and  what it takes to be a high performance athlete and encouraged them to keep on training hard. Below are the athletes doing some core exercises.
