ASA meeting to go ahead
Suspended ASA President James Evans said members have been intimidated from attending a meeting.
JOHANNESBURG - Embattled sports body Athletics South Africa (ASA) has called a special general meeting to discuss the way forward.
The meeting, scheduled to take place on Saturday afternoon, will go ahead despite the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) having suspended all board members.
The committee also placed ASA under administration.
Suspended ASA President James Evans has been in talks with governing body International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF).
The IAAF recognises the current ASA board as democratically elected.
Evans said, "[ASA chief executive] Tubby [Reddy] sent a letter to all our members telling them that they mustn't attend the meeting. So obviously, members have been intimidated to large extent by that. If we see a quorum, it will be a big snub to Sascoc."
