The national senior women’s field hockey team, gearing up to compete in the upcoming African Cup of Nations (Afcon) Olympic qualifiers in Pretoria, South Africa, received a significant morale boost yesterday when the Namibia National Olympic Committee (NNOC) extended their support with a sponsorship worth N$ 227 000. Football enthusiasts are in for another treat this coming weekend as the Namibia Premier Football League (NPFL) takes centre stage with a number of thrilling fixtures scheduled at various venues across the country. The 19th edition of the longest single-stage mountain bike race in the world, the Nedbank Desert Dash was yesterday launched in the capital, and organisers have hinted more participants this year. High flying Khomas Nampol FC have a tough assignment this weekend as they face two teams who have yet to taste victory after five rounds of matches in the Namibia Premier Football League 2023/24 season. Khomas Nampol’s men’s and women’s volleyball teams asserted their dominance at the Namibia Volleyball Federation cup finals, held at the Windhoek Showgrounds in the capital this past Saturday. Despite their unbeaten streak coming to an end against Okakarara Young Warriors, Khomas Nampol’s head coach, Fortune Eichab, remains firm in focusing on their core objectives and drawing inspiration from the positive takeaways of the weekend. The coach of Olympic 200-metre silver medalist Christine Mboma has dropped hints that the athlete is eager to return to the track after being temporarily banned from competing. Despite being placed in a tough group alongside some of the continent’s top field hockey nations, Petro Stoffberg, the captain of Namibia’s national senior women’s field hockey team, is brimming with confidence, believing that the team can secure the sought-after gold medal. It’s that time of the year when the nation comes together to celebrate sporting excellence, with top local athletes from various sporting disciplines gathering at the annual Namibia Annual Sports Awards (Nasa) The director of the Sports Expo, Tjeripo Musutua, expressed his satisfaction with the number of exhibitors participating in the annual event. Top cyclist Vera Looser and Mixed Martial Artist Veja Hinda were the biggest winners at this year’s Namibian Annual Sports Awards (Nasa), held at the MTC Dome in Swakopmund on Saturday. It was my first fight. Being my first fight, I was on edge most of the evening preceding the bout, especially since I had four bouts planned for that evening against well-seasoned fighters such as ‘Festus’ from Walvis Bay’s MMA & Kickboxing Academy. Namibia National Olympic Committee (NNOC) president Abner Xoagub has praised the potential of the just-ended expo in exposing the latest technologies to the entire nation. Excitement is building as the Debmarine Premiership returns this weekend, with a lineup of thrilling matches scheduled for Saturday and Sunday at various venues across the country. The Ministry of Information, Communication and Technology, in conjunction with the Ministry of Sports and National Youth Services, last week announced that they have entered into an agreement to provide national sporting attire to all sports codes. After months without any action, boxers in the northern region will get a chance to showcase their talent when the northern-based stable MTC Kilimanjaro Boxing Club hosts an event next week. In his first 90 days in office, newly-elected Namibia Football Association (NFA) president Robert Shimooshili envisions starting all the lower leagues and regional women’s leagues, as well as sourcing infrastructure for all the associations’ regional offices. Despite securing the top spot in the league, Ongos FC coach Paulus Shipanga remains focused and determined as his team prepares for crucial weekend encounters. In the realm of boxing, every match holds the potential to redefine a career – and for former World Boxing Organisation (WBO) Africa Super Bantamweight champion Energy Nghitumbwa, the upcoming battle is nothing short of pivotal. Football enthusiasts are in for a treat this weekend, as they have an overabundance of matches to choose from, with over 10 games scheduled for this weekend in the Debmarine Premiership.
