A feast of athletics action is confirmed for Seshego on Saturday where more than 800 athletes from across Limpopo compete in the provincial senior track and field championships.

The yearly event is staged by Limpopo Athletics (Lima) to select a team to represent the province at the national championships.

Athletics South Africa will hold the national senior track and field championships in Durban on March 16 and 17.

Limpopo athletes failed to win a medal at the national event in Stellenbosch, Western Cape, last year and it remains to be seen if those selected will get any in Durban this year.

"It is not all about winning medals, but to improve our performance and better our provincial rankings at the national championships," Attlee Maponyane, Lima president, said.

"Of course we want to select a strong team, which will be made up of athletes with the ability to win medals in Durban. I urge all our clubs to send their athletes because we don't want to leave deserving athletes out. They deserve to represent their province and expose their talents on the bigger stage."

Pharson Magagane of University of Limpopo Athletics Club, his teammate John Molongoana and Philimon Choshi of Mmotong Athletics Club are among the athletes expected to shine in Seshego.

Proceedings start at 9am.
