ASA name six for World Indoor Championships

Six athletes have been provisionally named to take part in the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Sopot, Poland next month.

The Interim Board of Athletics South African on Thursday confirmed that the IAAF will support a quota of six athletes for the 7-9 March event.

These are: Anaso Jobodwana (100m, pictured right), Johan Cronje (1500m), Elroy Gelant (3000m), Orazio Cremona (shot put), Zarck Visser (long jump) and Carina Horn (60m).

South Africa doesn’t have an indoor season but a number of athletes, such as previously mentioned as well as Olympian Andre Olivier, are currently campaigning in European and ASA has monitored their progress.

The qualification window only closes on 24 February but the ASA Interim Board has gone so far as to approve a preliminary team for the championships.

ASA will continue monitoring the performances of the South African Athletes, and a final team will be submitted to the IAAF on 24 February 2014.
