James Moloi the New President of Athletics SA

James Moloi has been voted in as the new President of Athletics South Africa and will lead the federation on a four-year term.

Moloi, who will now relinquish his presidency at Central Gauteng Athletics, received 39 votes to the 27 received by Aleck Skhosana, at the 2021 ASA Quadrennial General Meeting.

Shireen Noble is the new Vice-President and she takes over from Harold Adams.

The rest of the new board members are as follows:

  • Commissions’ Chairpersons:
  • Jean Verster (Track & Field)
  • Enoch Skosana (Road Running)
  • Jakes Jacobs (Cross Country)
  • Hendrick Mokganyetsi (Athletes Commission)
  • Additional Board Members:
  • Esther Malema (Limpopo Athletics)
  • Ntathu Gwadiso (Border Athletics)
  • Adelina Ranthimo (Athletics Free State)
  • Noma Nonkonyane (Western Province Athletics)

“As a priority, we need to put our heads together as a board and address how we can assist athletes who are in preparation for the Olympics and those who are searching for qualifiers,” said Moloi. “I would like to all thank the previous board members and previous commissions for all your work in the last term. I thank all the provinces from the bottom of my heart for the faith you had in myself and everyone else elected alongside me. I will listen to you, the provinces, because a good leader listens to advice and it will be your job to guide me. If you have problems, then talk to me. And if there are any issues between us, then let’s talk and resolve those matters amicably. We are going to need to find a way to assist those provinces who don’t have offices. My heart was sore when four of our provinces could not attend the u16-u20 Championships in Paarl because they didn’t have money to travel and accommodation. I think I will have to go out of my way and together with ASA to find them grants to enable them to attend.”
