Okahandja Beauties took over at the top of the Women’s Super League log after a recent walkover victory against Unam Bokkies.
Bokkies could not field a full team since some players were missing due to exams but they could not get the match postponed and Beauties received the points.
Bokkies’ coach Onward Utete requested a postponement two days before the match but Jacky Gertze of the NFA Women’s informed him that the match could not be postponed.
The London Olympic Games start in one month’s time on June 27 and to mark the event the British High Commission in Namibia issued the following statement:
London’s Games will be “a very British affair, on a very global stage”
One month to go, and London is calling...
As the first city to host the Olympics three times, we’re looking forward to welcoming the world to London in the days and weeks ahead. Every Games – from Sydney to Barcelona to Beijing – says something unique and distinctive about the country that hosts them. London will be no different.
The African Athletics Championships get underway in Porto Novo, Benin today with Namibia being represented by six athletes at the continental showpiece.
Sprinters Globine Mayova and Hitjiverue Kaanjuka; 400m athletes Tjipekapora Herunga and Frank Puriza; 800m athlete Daniel Nghipandulwa; and triple jumper Roger Haitengi will join Africa’s top athletes in search of medals at the biennial showpiece.
According to times achieved so far this year, Herunga will be Namibia’s best hope for a medal.
