Johanneseburg - Athletics SA's interim board, set up by a breakaway faction led by Sello Mokoena in November, is not recognised by the IAAF, ASA president James Evans has said on Friday.
In November, in the absence of Evans, an annual general meeting was held in Johannesburg where the existing ASA board was dissolved and a seven-member interim board, including Mokoena, was appointed.
"The motion and the council and the removal of the board was communicated to the IAAF.
"How many times do we have to say it that these guys don’t have any international recognition.
Evans said an end to the stalemate would only be reached only when the legitimate board's 10 positions had all been filled.
Earlier this month, the SA Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee announced that Thiare and South Africa’s International Olympic Committee member Sam Ramsamy would look at finding a solution to the stalemate.
