The most important event for Associate cricket gets underway in South Africa tomorrow as the 12 top teams below Test level fight it out in the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier. With four places on offer at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011, the competition is going to be fierce in what is a hugely significant tournament for cricket.
The MTN Business Off Road Triathlon which took place at the Friedenau Dam on Sunday, had a record turnout of more than 160 participants, which was well in excess of last year’s number of 120. Tokkie Bombosch was the overall winner of the full event and winner of the Over 40 category. He completed the 1.2km swim, 22.4km hilly off-road cycle and 8.7km bush run in a time of 2h 14m.
Wanderers comfortably beat United by seven wickets to win the MTC Cricket Premier League title on Saturday.
United captain Morne Karg scored a great century but received little support from his teammates as United were all out for 253 off their 50 overs.
Karg was in tremendous form, hitting a massive nine sixes and five fours as he raced to a century before eventually being dismissed for 138 off only 132 balls.
The annual youth soccer tournament held by the SKW (Sport Klub Windhoek) at their Olympia sports grounds took place the weekend of 27 - 29 March 2009. The tournament was once again sponosored by Retirement Fund Solutions.
Whilst it was the aim to promote soccer at youth level, it was sad to observe that ill-disciplined trainers and drunk spectators interfered in the play of the games.
