On the eve of the World Track and Field Championships in Berlin, Germany, the South African team has been reduced to 29 members.

Sprinters Kagisho Kumbane and Tshegofatso Meshoe have lost their battle against injury and return home.

Kumbane has a pinched nerve in his lower back, picked up at last month’s World Student Games in Belgrade while Meshoe can’t shake off a hamstring injury from an earlier training camp.

The Championships start tomorrow and end on August 23.
