ASA axes Evans and board
The former ASA president and his associates were voted out during an annual general meeting.
JOHANNESBURG - James Evans and his entire board have been removed from Athletics South Africa (ASA).
The former ASA president and all of his associates were voted out during an annual general meeting in Kempton Park on Saturday, after a motion of no confidence was tabled and unanimously agreed upon by the 17 regions that make up the sport in South Africa.
Evans did not attend the meeting because he was in court fighting to have the suspensions of five provincial boards upheld, although that battle has been lost as well.
Sello Mokoena, president of athletics in KwaZulu-Natal, explains the terms of the new interim board.
"Seven interim directors have been elected today to run the affairs of Athletics South Africa and try normalise the situation.
"They have a mandate of six months through which to call together an AGM and elect the new leadership of Athletics South Africa."
The interim board is headed by Harold Adams and also includes Sello Mokwena from KwaZulu-Natal and Moses Gericke from South Western Districts - two of the previously suspended members.
