Cape Town - Team South Africa could open their IAAF World Championships account with a gold and silver medal in the men's long jump on Saturday evening.
In Luvo Manyonga and Rushwal Samaai, South Africa possesses the bookmakers' top-two favourites for the gold medal.
Manyonga can be backed at 3/10 for the gold medal, while Samaai is joint second-favourite alongside American Jarrion Lawson at 6/1.

Of note is that Henderson will not be competing in London this weekend.
Manyonga owns a personal best leap of 8.65m.
Samaai, meanwhile, took bronze at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and the gold medal at the 2016 African Championships in Durban.
