Namibian professional soccer players Henrico Botes and Sidney Plaatjies were both on target for their clubs in South African league matches over the weekend.
Botes scored a brace in Swallows' 3-0 win over Robert Nauseb's Santos, while Sidney Plaatjies who recently quit the national side scored the opener for Jomo Cosmos in their 3-0 win against Ajax Cape Town.
Agnes Samaria continued her fantastic form of late when she broke the Namibian record over 1 500m at the IAAF Super Grand Prix in Doha, Qatar on May 11.
Although Samaria could only manage to come fourth in the race, her time of 4 minutes 07,76 seconds was a new Namibian national record, and in fact the fourth time that she had improved the mark this year.
