The Frank Fredericks Foundation handed over scholarships worth N$30 000 to promising young Namibian athletes on November 18.

Three athletes each received N$6 000 for exceptional performances in two categories.
The annual prize giving of the Rock & Rut Mountain Bike club’s MTC Cross Country Series took place on November 12.

The women’s categories were well contested in the senior and veteran’s categories, but unfortunately Vera Adrian did not have much opposition in the U16 category.
