ASA interim board elected
Johannesburg - Nine Athletics South Africa members have been elected to an interim board to head the embattled federation, according to Eye Witness News.
ASA’s entire board and several of its senior managers were suspended in the wake of the Caster Semenya debacle.
Ray Mali, who took over ASA’s administration this week, chaired a special meeting at Olympic House in Johannesburg.
ASA members demanded a 50% representation on the body’s board, so that they have the opportunity to run their own sport and restore the image of athletics.
Four of the nine elected members are athletes including Geraldine Pillay.
Some athletes are not happy with the selection, saying that less than 50% are current or former athletes.
