2009-11-25 10:42

THE South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee

(Sascoc) president Gideon Sam and chief executive Tubby Reddy had a positive

meeting with the president of International Association of Athletics Federations

(IAAF), Lamine Diack, and his team in Monaco yesterday.

At the meeting the governing body of world athletics was provided

with an update on the setting up of an ad-hoc committee to manage the affairs of

athletics in South Africa for a period of about six months.

The IAAF was also made aware of the fact that the Sascoc board

member Ray Mali was appointed as the administrator whose task it is to manage

athletics with the ad-hoc committee and eventually set up full elections of a

board for Athletics SA (ASA).

The world athletics body was informed further that the enquiry

process will continue under the jurisdiction of Sascoc/ASA on all suspended

board members and staff of ASA.
