    Interesting that they are now meeting with Diack and co. and "please explaining". After their initial shouts of racism and threats of the international courts and what not, they quickly saw the writing on the wall and a more than realistic chance of being banned - rules are rules...

    Why travel all the way to Monaco? How much did that cost SASCOC? Why not just a simple teleconference?

    This is a bold move by SASCOC, it will ensure that the participation of our athletes in international games is guarranteed. Above all, I hope that SA athletics bosses have learned something on the Semenya saga and that never again will it be that one of our own is humilated as a result of poor judgement from the very same people who are supposed to manage them.

    This is a world of money and corruption, we expect you to set up committees and commissions to be filled with friends, relatives and buddies, paid a lot of money, criticise the predecessors and soon leave for "green pastures", It has become a tendency in RSA. Make a difference.
