Johannesburg - South Africans Ofentse Mogawane, Hannes Dreyer and Mapaseka Makhanya dominated their respective races in perfect weather conditions at the Pfingstsportfest athletics meeting in Rehlingen, Germany, on Monday.

Dreyer coasted into the final of the men’s 100 metres after winning his heat in 10.41 seconds.

He went on to win the final in 10.34, holding off Ronalds Arajs of Latvia by 0.07 seconds.

Mogawane, meanwhile, secured victory in the men's 400m race in 45.80, his second fastest time of the season.

Great Britain’s Richard Buck finished second in 45.92.
