After waiting for the leaderboard to shake out after day 2 of competition at the Fittest in Cape Town — it’s clear that the final day is going to be a battle…especially on the women’s leaderboard.

Michelle Merand and Michelle Basnett are tied in points with 365 apiece and only 2 events left. For the men — no surprise that Jason Smith is sitting in first for two consecutive days but, Kealan Henry had a strong day 2 putting him in contention for that Games ticket if he puts his foot on the gas on the final day.

Morning Chalk Up’s Lauren Kalil sits down with Zoe Schnetler to talk about all of the major moments from the day and who she will be watching closely on the final day of competition.
