SASCOC and SRSA respect process of ASA dispute

With regard to the ongoing developments in the code of athletics, the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) and the department of Sports and Recreation South Africa (SRSA) both recognise the role of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) executive member, Dr Sam Ramsamy, in dealing with the Athletics South Africa (ASA) issue as a result of its alleged administrative malpractice.

Both SASCOC and SRSA take note of the Interim Chair and committee, which was elected in a Special General Meeting of ASA, held on 30 November 2013. Based on the information provided both to SASCOC and SRSA, it would appear that the provisions of the ASA Constitution were complied with.

Having noted that Dr Sam Ramsamy and the IAAF representative, Mr Cheikh Thiare, will be meeting the various stakeholders on 24 and 25 January 2014, it is envisaged that a final directive will be provided for the advancement of athletics in our country and the upliftment of their suspension from SASCOC.
