A bumper weekend of sport lies in store as Namibia plays host to international rugby, soccer and athletics events.
In rugby, Namibia faces Zambia in a Confederation of African Rugby Cup encounter, while Namibia also faces Zambiaâ??s national soccer team in a friendly match. In athletics, ten countries are expected to participate in the Southern African Regional Championships which will serve as a final qualifying tournament for the All Africa Games in July.
The Namibia Sport Commission has backed down from a threat to deregulate Athletics Namibia and instead given it until July 31 to hand in its outstanding financial reports.
At a press conference on May 23, the chairperson of the NSC, Stanley Simaataa said they had reconsidered their decision to de-register AN, mainly to guarantee participation of Namibian athletes at forthcoming events such as the All Africa Games and the 2008 Olympic Games.
