The South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) has said that the election of new leaders at Athletics South Africa (ASA) spells a fresh start for the federation.
James Evan and Motlatsi Keikabile were elected as president and deputy respectively during a special general meeting in Kempton Park on Saturday.
Evans is replacing Leonard Chuene who was suspended by Sascoc over the Caster Semenya gender debacle. Chuene was found guilty of financial impropriety following an investigation into the federation's affairs.
Sascoc's Gideon Sam said the organisation will report back to Parliament's portfolio committee in August on its interventions at ASA.
"All we are going to do is sit down with the portfolio committee and say this is what happened, we are now finished. The elections have been done [so] as far as we are concerned as Sascoc, we have done our business," he said.
