Basil le Roux from Cape Town to represent South Africa

The Kennel Union of Southern Africa has pleasure in announcing that, in taking the relevant circumstances into account, the Federal Council has come to the decision that Basil le Roux is the most appropriate contender to be offered the opportunity to represent South Africa at the International Junior Handler Competition at Crufts 2022.

Fedco considered that, since no Junior Handler Nationals were held in South Africa in 2020 and 2021 due to the cancellation of the KUSA Classic, and the 2019 winner has already represented South Africa at Crufts in 2019, the opportunity to compete at Crufts 2022 should be offered to the Runner-up to the 2019 KUSA National Junior Handler.

Basil has agreed to avail himself of the opportunity to compete at Crufts from 10 – 13 March in Birmingham, U.K, and we are confident that he will represent South Africa with the skill and finesse which have earned him so many accolades as a handler and showman. We wish him every success in his preparations and have no doubt he will make South Africa proud on the big day!
