Rössing marathon champions receive N$ 20 000 development bonus
(4 August 2021)

The 2021, 30th Rössing National Marathon champion, Jeremia Shaliaxwe and Alina Armas, were recently awarded a development bonus worth N$20 000.

These sponsorships, 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 Ladies Open categories to enable them to build their athletics careers beyond the actual marathon competition.

Rössing continues to monitor and support the careers and achievements of our winners by continuing to render material support through the bonuses - to be spent on training gear, supplements, medical supplies in case of injuries. This sponsorship is part of Rössing’s long-term commitment to sport in Namibia.

Kaino Nghitongo, Rössing’s Acting Manager Corporate Communication, said: “We want to play our part in giving Namibia’s athletes the best possible chance to succeed on the world stage. We believe that our association with Namibian champions will inspire and encourage other Namibians runners to get more involved in sport and be our sporting heroes of tomorrow.” Hosted virtually due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the marathon received over 350 runners from all over Namibia
