The end of 2006 is upon us and with sporting activities dying down, we here at Namibia Sport will also close down for a short while.
We hope that you enjoyed our website in 2006 and look forward to bringing you more news in the new year. We also plan to bring some innovations to the website like more photos and interactive features like polls to get more feedback from you, our readers. In the meantime, feel free to add your views on our website or on Namibian sport in general by emailing your views to us.
