COVID-19 Concerns Force Postponement Of Africa Cross Country Championships

Due to the troubling surge in the number of Coronavirus cases in Togo, the 6th edition of the Africa Cross Country Championships, which was scheduled to take place on March 6th and 7th in Lomé, Togo, has been postponed indefinitely

In a statement on Wednesday, the Confederation of African Athletics (CAA) said, “The announcement was made following a request by the Togolese authorities who raised sanitary measures to contain the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.”

Togo has so far registered 6,548 Coronavirus cases and 82 deaths.

The event was initially postponed in March 2020 due to presidential elections in the West African nation.

Kenya is among the countries that have been preparing a strong team for the 2021 Africa Cross Country Championships. The East African Nation recently held a tough national qualifying championship in the capital Nairobi that saw a number of new talents emerge from the muddy affair.
