Johannesburg - Another athletics meeting has been postponed at the back end of the South African domestic track and field season.
Athletics South Africa (ASA) confirmed on Friday that next week's SA Open Championships in Germiston would be held later next month. No reason was given for the postponement.
"The SA Open Championships will take place later in the month (May), possibly in conjunction with the Southern Region Youth Championships that was supposed to take place this weekend," ASA said in a statement.
"A possible date will be on May 24-25, but still has to be confirmed."
The second of three permit meetings in the domestic season was postponed indefinitely last week.
Event organiser Danie Cornelius said the Tuks Gert le Roux Invitation meeting, scheduled to be held in Pretoria, would take place at a later stage, due to "emergency repairs" on the track. A new date had not been set.
ASA announced in February that three permit meetings would be held this season, as well as the SA Open and Senior Championships events, and various age group championships, after Yellow Pages chose not to renew its track and field sponsorship at the end of last year.
The first permit meeting, hosted by Athletics Central North West, was held in Potchefstroom in March, and the third scheduled meeting, hosted by Pukke Athletics Club, was held in Potchefstroom last week.
