James Evans re-elected president

Saturday, 9 June 2012 – James Evans was re-elected as President of Athletics South Africa at the quadrennial elections held at the Garden Court OR Tambo with Hendrick Ramaala winning the race for the Vice President.

James Evans and Harold Adams were the only two candidates standing for the position of President as Hendrick Ramaala, Motlatsi Keikabile and Aleck Skhosana withdrew before voting commenced.  Evans received 33 votes with Adams second, receiving 24 of the votes.

“It is pleasing to see that the current board was on the right track and members are voting for continuity,” said Evans shortly after being re-elected.

With a total of 31 votes, Hendrick Ramaala was elected as the Vice President of Athletics South Africa against the 26 of Geraldine Pillay.  Harold Adams, Motlatsi Keikabile and Aleck Skhosana withdrew their nominations, leaving the race between Pillay and Ramaala.

Provinces had 2 votes each; the 7 associate members, the members of the 4 commission (track and field, road running, cross country, athletes) and the board members each one vote.  Voting took place by means of ballot under supervision of SASCOC.


  1. Now that the ASA AGM has come and gone. The Soweto Marathon must be handed over to its rightful owners and the Shenagans happening at CGA with the President James Moloi and his friend Junior Ramovha not paying athletes after two years must be dealt with. We hoe that his second bite at the helm of the ASA will give Evans the empetous to roll up his slives and really sort our the mess with the respective provinces. CGA as the biggest should be the first on his agenda. Corruption in this province is highly prevalent.
