Full list of Covid-19 relief fund beneficiaries

Athletics, boxing and golf benefited the most from the list of 293 SA sport stars and coaches who received handouts from the government’s Covid-19 relief fund.

Last month the Minister of Sports, Arts and Culture, Nathi Mthethwa, announced the R150-million relief fund for the sector in a bid to soften the heavy economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic after the cancellation or suspension of sporting events. The department said that the monies due to athletes who met the qualifying criteria will be capped at R20 000.

Track superstar Wayde van Niekerk and top sprinter Akani Simbine are amongst the athletes to have received help, along with boxing’s world champions Hekkie Budler and Kevin Lerena and golf’s Dean Burmester and Ashleigh Buhai.

Athletes who are notably absent on the list of beneficiaries are double Olympic 800m champion Caster Semenya‚ long jumper and former world champion Luvo Manyonga and former WBO bantamweight champion Zolani Tete.

The list from the department of sport is dominated by athletes‚ boxers and golfers but it also covers those who participate in the disciplines of equestrian‚ netball‚ surfing‚ fencing‚ gymnastics‚ canoeing‚ tennis and triathlon. Athletes belonging to the SA Sports Association for Physically Disabled (SASPD) and those who represent the various SA Football Association (Safa) national teams have also benefited.
