Dakar, May 27 (APS) – The Senegalese Athletics Federation will meet its office this Tuesday to examine the possibilities of holding the national athletics championships for the organization of which it says it is counting on the State for lack of the necessary means, announced its president, Colonel Sara Ouly.

Colonel Ouly made the announcement in an interview with APS this Monday, ahead of this competition which is to be held next weekend.

“We had planned to organize the national championships, but currently the federal office has to hold a meeting tomorrow [mardi 28 mai] to see the possibilities of organizing this competition,” he said.

He recalled that the federation “organized the Dakar meeting in very difficult conditions, to the extent that the supervisory authority did not have the means to support us, especially financially.”

“This is why we need to come together to see the conditions for organizing these national championships on the due date,” he argued.

“At the end of this meeting, we need to meet the authorities to see if they are in a position to support us so that we can hold them. At our level, we do not have the means to maintain this [compétition]”, he insisted.

He plans to hold a meeting with the Ministry of Sports, given the fact that, according to him, the Federation does not have the means to organize the competition.
