League Notes: Evans Dismisses Athletics South Africa Annual General Meeting As Invalid
Athletics South Africa President James Evans said that the annual general meeting held on Saturday where the federation's entire board was dissolved "is unconstitutional and invalid." Neither Evans nor VP Hendrick Ramaala were in attendance "as they were appearing in a Johannesburg High Court to uphold Thursday's decision to suspend five members of the provincial boards" (SAPA, 12/2). ... Int'l Cycling Union (UCI) President Brian Cookson addressed stakeholders from the global cycling family, including teams and organizers who were attending the annual UCI WorldTour seminar taking place in Chantilly. Cookson: "We must improve the financial performance of professional cycling, and to do this we must increase its visibility, make it clearer and more attractive. By doing so, we will have a more stable structure that will support all those who wish to contribute to the development of our sport in both historic and new territories" (UCI).
