Johannesburg - Athletics South Africa (ASA) will replace its recently sacked CEO, Frik Vermaak, with a general secretary, the federation has announced.

"Following a recent decision to align the position of the head of the administration with international norms, the position of chief executive officer will be done away with and replaced with that of a general secretary," ASA said in a statement.

The main focus of the job would be to "ensure the smooth running of the organisation's administration and finances".

Applications for the position would be accepted until November 30.

Vermaak, appointed in December last year, was fired in September after he was found guilty in a disciplinary hearing of gross misconduct, gross dishonesty and poor work performance.

He said he would challenge the dismissal.
