JOHANNESBURG - Olympic body Sascoc said Athletics South Africa (ASA) Administrator Zola Majavu will stay in his post despite the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF's) disapproval.

In a letter to Sascoc, the IAAF said it does not recognise Majavu threatening to form an ad hoc committee to take over the running of ASA.

The IAAF has also asked to meet Sascoc next week for the Olympic body to explain the situation around ASA's administration.

Sascoc suspended ASA President James Evans and the entire ASA board in April for infringing provisions of the Olympic body's constitution.

Sascoc CEO Tubby Reddy said the Olympic body is sticking to its guns as far as the running of ASA is concerned.

"Mr Evans is out and will remain suspended. Mr Majavu will continue as the administrator doing the good work he's been doing and so we will not derail this process for anyone to hold us ransom in terms of the sport".
