The president of Athletics Namibia, Frank Fredericks has blasted certain athletics clubs’ poor planning that led to athletes being stranded without accommodation in Swakopmund over the weekend.
More than 400 athletes from 24 clubs throughout Namibia descended on the coastal town for the Rossing Athletics Club Championships, which formed the second leg of the Athletics Namibia Club Series.
Many of the athletes were booked into the Swakopmund bungalows on Friday evening, but on Saturday, after the event, certain athletes from the north were left stranded without accommodation.
Swakopmund came alive on Saturday when Athletics Namibia hosted the Rössing Athletics Club Championships at the Swakopmund Athletics Stadium. The Rössing Athletics Club Championships formed part of the second leg of the three leg series of the Athletics Namibia Club Championships. Approximately 400 athletes from 24 Clubs across the country took part in the coveted event.
The Golden Cheetah Athletics Club were the overall winners of the second leg of the Club series with a total of 91 points and were followed by Swakop Striders (67) and Oshakati Athletics Club (61).
