Johannesburg - The board of Athletics SA (ASA) was dissolved at an annual general meeting here on Saturday.

A seven-member interim board has been appointed to run the sport for the next six months, after which another annual general meeting would be called and elections would be held.

The seven members were Tebogo Masehla, Harold Adams, Aleck Skhosana, Jakes Jacobs, Daan du Toit, Steven Khanyile and Sello Mokoena.

Speaking on behalf of the interim board Mokoena said they had been given a mandate to normalise matters at the embattled federation.

"As it stands now, ASA is under interim leadership. Seven interim directors have been appointed today to run the affairs," Mokoena said.

Neither ASA president James Evans nor vice-president Hendrick Ramaala were in attendance. They were appearing in a Johannesburg High Court to uphold Thursday's decision to suspend five members of the provincial boards.

"The five members ignored the dispute resolution mechanisms in the Constitutions of Athletics South Africa and Sascoc and (were) also in violation of the rules of the IAAF," Evans said in a statement on Saturday.
