New timing equipment for KZN Athletics

CMA chair Sifiso Nzuza hands over track timing equipment worth R350 000 to KZNA head coach Mohamed Ally.

THE Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) handed over state-of-the-art track timing equipment to the provincial athletics federation, KwaZulu-Natal Athletics (KZNA) in Durban last week, as part of its Corporate Social Investment programme.

Briefing the media, CMA Chairperson, Sifiso Nzuza said: “This handover of electronic timing equipment to the provincial athletics mother body signifies the decades’ long relationship of cooperation and support between KZNA and the CMA.”

In supporting its provincial athletics structure, the CMA has over the years been involved in several projects in allocating its CSI funds towards the furthering of athletics development. The CMA’s contribution towards the purchase of electronic timing equipment goes hand in hand with its involvement in the hosting and funding of a technical officials course.

The electronic timing equipment, valued at R350 000, will offer more efficient and accurate production of results as well as a faster turnaround time, thereby assisting with the instant issuing of race results to the media and spectators at track events.

Nzuza said: “As the CMA, we are committed to contributing to the advancement of athletics in South Africa. Through initiatives like these, the Comrades Marathon aims to benefit as many races and the overall sport of athletics, enabling the staging of a higher quality of events and adding to the greater good through skills transfer and other meaningful ways.”

KZNA President Sello Mokoena thanked the CMA for its contribution to athletics development saying: “We are grateful indeed for the donation of track timing equipment and the CMA’s commitment to athletics in the province.”
