Brave Warriors coach Tom Saintfiet has denied applying for the Zimbabwean coaching position saying that he intends to fulfill his contract with Namibia’s Brave Warriors.
Speculation in the media has been rife that Saintfiet has applied for the Zimbabwean national coaching job, with the Zimbabwean The Standard newspaper reporting that he was one of six coaches who had applied for the job, while the Zimbabwean Chronicle even reported that he had been appointed as Zimbabwe’s new coach.
Saintfiet however told Namibia Sport that the rumours were unfounded.
An International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) accredited Instructor Mr. Solomon Bekele from Ethiopia was in Namibia conducting a referee course under the Volleyball Cooperation Program that kicked off on 30 August until 03 September 2010.
Despite the 32 candidates that confirmed to attend the course, a total of only 18 participants turned up, while others could not be released from work.
Namibia will be going to the ICC Under 19 Global World Cup qualifiers after they won all of their seven matches in the Africa qualifiers that were held in Windhoek over the past week.
Namibia had a total of 14 points and will be joined by second placed Kenya who finished with ten points after winning five of the seven matches they played.
