Namibian team for Yellow Pages Series


A Namibian team of eight athletes left for South Africa on Wednesday to compete in the upcoming Yellow Pages Athletics Series.

Their coach and manager Letu Hamhola told Namibia Sport that they were trying to get more athletes to qualify for the African Championships in Benin and the Olympic Games in London and that the higher level of competition in South Africa would help them achieve that.

“We currently only have Tjipe Herunga who has qualified in the 400m for the Olympics, but we want more to qualify and I think especially the African Championships standards are reachable,” he said.
