Cape Town - Athletics South Africa (ASA) has taken note of the announcement made by Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula on Monday that he has withdrawn the privilege of hosting international events from ASA, in which he also said will not affect the participation of athletes.

Mbalula punished the cricket, rugby, netball and athletics bodies in the country for not meeting the required rate of transformation in their sports. 

Mbalula has banned the federations in charge of all of those sports from bidding and hosting major sporting events until the decision is reviewed next year.

ASA will take the opportunity to study the pronouncement, after which they will engage with Mbalula and his office on the relevant matters pertaining to this matter.
