Zambia: ZAAA Holds Trials

THE Zambia Amateur Athletics Association will at the weekend hold the national cross-country selection championship in Kabwe aimed at picking a team to represent the country at the Southern Region Cross Country competition.

ZAAA international relations manager Davison Mungabata said yesterday that the association was using the Saturday championship to select a formidable team that would represent the country at the regional competition set for March 2 in Lesotho.

Mungabata said the Copperbelt and Midlands based clubs have been invited to take part in the selection process by bringing their best athletes so that a strong team can be picked for the regional event.

He said no athlete was guaranteed of a place in the national team as everyone was expected to fight for a place as ZAAA wants to send a strong team to challenge for the top place.
