In 2011 Shuan and team ran a 3:03.37 on the 4 x 400m at Heusden-Zolder, Belgium. He has been making quite an uproar this year in the 400m showing some top athletes in SA how it is done. At the 2012 Summer Olympics, de Jager was part of the South African team in the 4×400 metres relay race. In the first semifinal, Ofentse Mogawane fell and dislocated his shoulder when he collided with Kenya’s Vincent Kiilu, resulting in South Africa’s withdrawal from the race. South Africa was passed into the final on appeal to the IAAF, due to interference from the Kenyan athlete who downed Mogawane. They were assigned the 9th lane and finished in 8th place with their season’s best time of 3:03.46.
