2009 was a watershed for Athletics Namibian as Alpha Kangueehi’s controversial reign as president finally came to an end. Kangueehi had presided over Namibian athletics for more than five years during which time sponsorships dried up while national track and field as well as cross-country championships steadily diminished.
Namibia’s national rugby team capped a great year when they beat Tunisia 22-10 in Windhoek on October 28 to qualify for the 2011 Rugby World Cup. It was the fourth successive time that Namibia had qualified for the World Cup and the fifth time overall, as they once again underlined their status as the second best rugby nation on the African continent behind the world champions, the Springboks from South Africa. Namibia’s victory in Windhoek gave them a 40-23 aggregate victory after Namibia won the first leg in Tunisia 18-13.
