Olympic finalist Ronald Musagala has joined Joshua Cheptegei and Abel Sikowo to take part in the inaugural Athletix Grand Prix Series to take place in South Africa in March.

Athletics South Africa (ASS) confirmed that Musagala had also been entered for the Series. Both Musagala and Cheptegei will use the Series to prepare for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games to take place in Australia in April.

 “This will be great to travel to South Africa and improve on my speed in this Grand Prix,” Musagala told URN on Wednesday. He will be expected to run in the 1,500m race on March 1st at the Ruimsig Stadium and on March 8th in the 3,000m race at Tuks in Tshwane.

The 25-year-old is in fine form, having anchored his regional team to a win in the team relay at the Ugandan National Cross Country Championship.

Cheptegei, a World 10,000m silver medalist said the Series in South Africa (in Johannesburg, Tshwane, Paarl) will help him prepare better ahead of the Commonwealth Games.   

Musagala is excited at the prospect of facing his countryman Cheptegei in the 1,500m race in Johannesburg. “Cheptegei is a top runner, but the 1,500m is my speciality distance and my countryman will need to run on my terms,” he added.
