Standard Bank Namibia yesterday unveiled a whopping sponsorship of N$500 000, geared towards the development of youth hockey. From winning Namibia’s first Olympic medal in 25 years at this year’s Tokyo Games, to being crowned 200m champion in her maiden appearance at the recent World U/20 Championships in Nairobi, Kenya – sprint wunderkind Christine Mboma today has another golden opportunity to further rewrite history books. Lukas Sinimbo Muha, the chairperson of the country’s National Council, has globalised the fight against the ban of sprinters Christine Mboma and Beatrice Masilingi from competing in events from 400m up to a mile by World Athletics. Namibian towering flanker Max Katjijeko has sealed a deal with Spanish Rugby Premier Division side Ordizia Rugby Elkartea, which sees the 26-year-old becoming the club’s third latest addition. Slowly but surely putting to shame critics of her so-called elevated natural testosterone levels with a string of thunderous performances, Namibia’s Tokyo Olympics silver medallist and 2021 Diamond League 200m reigning champion Christine Mboma will tomorrow again have all eyes fixed on her. For the first time since their unceremonious ban from partaking in the 400m event by World Athletics due to their so-called elevated natural testosterone levels, Namibia’s sprint queens Christine Mboma and Beatrice Masilingi yesterday opened up about the sensitive topic and shared their experience. Director of the 2021 Namibia Annual Sports Expo (NASE) Tjeripo Musutua is adamant that going full-scale digital with this year’s expo will mark a huge turning point for the local sporting fraternity, as it will accord all stakeholders an equal opportunity to connect with the international community. In its latest global rankings, World Athletics has ranked Namibia’s Tokyo Olympics silver medallist Christine Mboma as the number one athlete in the 200m event, finishing well ahead of Olympics double champion Elaine Thompson-Herah of Jamaica. World football governing body Fifa on Tuesday cracked the whip on members of the besieged Namibia Football Association (NFA) executive committee, reaffirming its support towards the presidency of Ranga Haikali.
