The Northern Prov’s versus Southern Prov’s Teams T&F Challenge which was scheduled for Durban this Saturday 6 May and Germiston on 13 May 2017 has been officially cancelled by Athletics South Africa.
ASA has been unable to find the necessary sponsorship for the much-awaited inaugural concept to see it through.
The Meeting would have seen a clash of athletes representing the Northern part of the country and their counterparts from the South.
“We regret the decision to cancel, but we had no choice as we also do not have the money to carry it on our own,” said Aleck Skhosana, the President of ASA.
“The whole idea was to offer our elite and upcoming athletes more opportunities of domestic competition to prepare them for international arena and other targets.
“Following this unfortunate development, we are now refocussing all our energy to ensure preparation of our athletes for the successful participation at the IAAF World Senior Championships in London which will be held on 04-13 August 2017.”
