In other events that took place on Day 1, Hannes Dreyer failed to proceed to the next round in the 100 m for men after sustaining a slight hamstring injury.
All the Tuks athletes participating in the men’s 400 m event proceeded to the next round. Willie de Beer finished third in his heat in a time of 46,80 seconds, and in the fifth heat Oscar Pistorius claimed second place  in a time of 46,32 seconds.
As far as the women were concerned, Estie Wittstock solidified her place in the next round of the 400 m in a time of 53,58 seconds when she finished fourth in her heat, and Claudia Viljoen advanced to the 100 m hurdles final when she finished her heat in a time of  14,49 seconds.

The CAA African Championships have been marred by torrential rains that caused many events to have been postponed until Day 2.
