The FNB WHS Sport Festival has been organised in conjunction with the Janine and Suzelle Davin Sport Trust Fund for the past five years and offers an opportunity to sports teams from leading schools in Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe to battle it out for honours in rugby, netball, hockey and tennis at WHS’s FNB Stadium.
FNB Namibia’s Group Legal Advisor Brian Katjaerua said they were proud to be associated with the initiative.
Round Four of the Bank Windhoek Namibian National Enduro Series which was held in and around Aranos on Saturday, 9 June, was a huge success with local riders joining the national competitors to take on the red dunes and other obstacles.
A total of 96 riders took part in this event, proving that the number of competitors in the sport has been growing during this year.
Racing got underway in chilly conditions but the riders were soon sweating and fighting it out for the top spot in the different classes.
The Namibia Defence Force’s men’s team concluded the Bank Windhoek National Volleyball League’s first round with a clean record after beating Unam 3-1 on Saturday.
The NDF started the game on the attack and went on to win the first set 25-16.
Unam however responded aggressively with some fierce spiking from Nchindo Sinvula and quality setting from Kamwi Sezuni to comfortably win the second set 25-11.
Globine Mayova continued her good form of late by winning the 200m at an international athletics meeting in Tampere, Finland on Sunday.
Despite the rainy conditions, Mayova ran the bend aggressively and powered down the home straight to win in a time of 24,14 seconds, with compatriot Tjipekapora Herunga coming fourth in 24,33.
Mayova expressed delight at her victory but said the conditions were not conducive to fast times.
