Namibian boxing promoter Nestor Tobias has vowed to take boxing to the next level in Namibia despite the fact that local boxing is still struggling to raise sufficient sponsorships.
Tobias will be hosting his fourth professional tournament of the year at the Windhoek Country Club on Saturday evening, but like two of the previous three, he still does not have a sponsor for the event and will have to foot the bill from the ticket sales and out of his own pocket.
Tobias was however still hopeful of finding a sponsor and called on the corporate world to come on board.
Johanna Benson was firmly on course to win a second medal at the London Paralympic Games when she qualified for the Women’s T37 200m final with the fastest time of the heats.
Benson won Heat 2 on Wednesday morning in 29,39 seconds, with Bethany Woodward of Great Britain coming second in 29,50 and another Brit, Jenny McLoughlin coming third in 29,73.
Benson got off to a slow start but soon got into her stride and took the lead at the halfway stage.
The seventh and second last round of the Bank Windhoek Namibian National Series for 2012 will take place at Uis on Saturday, 8 September.
The Uis event is co-sponsored by AB Construction, CRP and Namibia Technical Services.
The race will take place in and around Uis in some of the condemned areas and will again feature some great obstacles like the abandoned buildings that are brought into the mix. With the service area on the hill, spectators will be able to see most of the track.
