SAMA National Virtual Championship 2021

THE RESULTS ARE IN …

Congratulations to each and every athlete who competed in our SAMA National Championships for 2021. Let us all hope that we can return to full track and field competition for 2022 and that we can all get together as a group of Masters Athletes for the 2022 SAMA National Championships.

From KZN Masters Athletics Committee, we would like to thank SAMA and the national executive committee for the opportunity to host the champs, originally planned for 2020, and then through various meetings and restraints due to Covid regulations into 2021, it was agreed to host the championships virtually and give our athletes the opportunity to experience a fun competition.

As Chairman, I would also like to thank my KZNMA committee for hours and hours of meetings to plan, discuss and re-plan and re-discuss for these competitions. Our secretary Sharon, thank you for all the behind the scene work you’ve put in!

We now, at last, hand the baton over to the next province and wish you the best of luck for our next competition in 2022.

Above are the final results that were submitted for the virtual competition and you can sort by name, competition number, or age group.

With regards to the medals and the athletes who ordered the T-Shirts, your parcel is being prepped and almost ready to pack and be sent to you via courier. We will send an email once they are ready and on their way to you.

Greetings,
KZNMA Committee
