Sascoc suspends ASA membership
Sascoc's Tubby Reddy said ASA president James Evans left the committee with no choice.
JOHANNESBURG - The South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) on Sunday suspended Athletics South Africa (ASA) after members ignored sanctions placed on its board.
This followed a special general meeting held on Saturday.
ASA president James Evans called the meeting.
The federation agreed to reinstate its board and regain control of the organisation.
Sunday's decision means athletes affiliated to ASA will not be included in Team South Africa events, including the Commonwealth and Olympic games.
Sascoc's Tubby Reddy said Evans left the committee with no choice.
"The story in the media space is that everything is fine at ASA, which we know is not the case. Enough is enough. I have taken the decision to suspend the membership of ASA from Sascoc."
