BASKETBALL South Africa (BSA) and Nelson Mandela Bay Basketball Association (NMBBA) Deputy President, Sibongile Fondini, will represent Basketball South Africa (BSA) at the Federation of International Basketball Association (FIBA) Africa Mid-Term Congress that will take place in Bamako, Mali from April 20 to 21.

It is the biggest basketball gathering on the continent with 52 national basketball federations that would be in attendance.

Fondini said, “This gives me an opportunity to grow as an individual and to gain more experience in the game of basketball. Furthermore, I will also have the opportunity to exchange knowledge with the continent’s think tanks and task groups.

“This is indeed a great milestone for me, as an administrator, to particpate at such a level in Africa. I look forward to adding value at the FIBA Mid-Term Congress.”

Fondini, who had started a schools’ basketball league two seasons ago, won the Best Administrator of the Year award for 2015 from the Eastern Cape Department of Sport and Recreation.

Fondini was also an Administrator of the Year finalist for 2016 losing his title to Luxolo Qoboshiyane of the Border Cricket Team.

Fondini has a proven track record of organising and developing various sports at local, regional, and national level.
