JOHAN Cronje achieved an Olympic qualifying time in the 1500m at a small meet in Germany on Friday night.


Cronje, who ended third in 3min 35.33sec, will need another sub-3:33.50 effort to seal his selection.

Meanwhile, his more famous compatriots Caster Semenya and Oscar Pistorius struggled at Ostrava in the Czech Republic.

Semenya finished second in her event but was miles behind Kenya's Pamela Jelimo, while Pistorius finished last in the 400m.
