Namibian athletes off to Donetsk for World Youth Championships

Three budding young athletes accompanied by their team leader earlier this week departed to Donetsk, Ukraine to represent Namibia at the World Youth Championships in athletics that takes place from 10 to 14 July 2013.
Divan Rossouw, Lee-Anzo Losper and Paulus Nghixulu, all qualified for the world class event, making it the first time that Namibia has sent a team of this size for the World Youth Championships. Khomas Region’s Divan Rossouw, who met the qualifying standards will take part in the 400m hurdles for boys, whilst Paulus Nghixulu from the Omusati Region will be Namibia’s medal hopeful in the boys 400m event. The Erongo Region’s latest sprinting sensation Lee-Anzo Losper will keep the nation’s hopes alive when he competes in the boys 100m and 200m sprint events.
“Namibia has a lot of talented young athletes that are starting to make a name for themselves and I am sure that their participation at the World Youth Championships will show just that” said Carmen Walder, Namibia’s Team Leader, “The athletes showed impressive skills during qualification and we are hopeful that Namibia will bring back a medal or two.”
Namibia is one of the 165 Member Federations comprising of a total of 1532 athletes that will compete in the World Youth Championships.
