The 2021 Rössing National Marathon champions, Jeremia Shaliaxwe and Alina Armas, were awarded a development bonus worth N$20 000.

The sponsorship, made in addition to the N$10 000 cash prize won by each of the two category winners during the virtual Rössing marathon in June, forms part of the mine’s focus on promoting healthy lifestyles.

Rössing awards development bonuses to the Namibian winners in the men’s and women’s open categories to enable them to build their athletics careers beyond the actual marathon competition.

Rössing’s acting manager of corporate communication, Kaino Nghitongo, said the mine continues to monitor and support the careers and achievements of race winners by continuing to render material support through the bonuses, which are intended to be spent on training gear, supplements and medical supplies in case of injuries.

“This sponsorship is part of Rössing’s long-term commitment to sport in Namibia. We want to play our part in giving Namibian athletes the best possible chance to succeed on the world stage.

“We believe that our association with Namibian champions will inspire and encourage other Namibian runners to get more involved in sport and be our sporting heroes of tomorrow.”

Hosted virtually due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the marathon attracted over 350 runners from all over Namibia.
