Namibia makes a clean sweep

17 December 2018 | Sports

Hosts Namibia showed what local anglers are made of, making a clean sweep at the recently hosted Region V Light Tackle Boat Freshwater Angling competition against South Africa at the Hardap dam.

As in the past two years, Zimbabwe did not participate.

Two practice days preceded the event, whereafter the 3-day competition began in all seriousness.

On day one, the Namibians already showed their mettle against their formidable South African counterparts in the categories for the senior, u.21, u.16, ladies' and presidential teams, as well as two development teams, that took the top spot on the standings.

On day two, their success continued, with all the local teams – including the veterans this time round – that took first place in the various categories. This meant that the teams were already victorious based on the Grand Prix point system used for this competition. On day 3 the Namibians increased their lead in all the categories, securing victory for the local team – a first in the history of light tackle angling in Namibia.

According to the chairman of the Light Tackle Boat Freshwater Angling Association (NLTBFAA), André Theart, the team's success can be ascribed to thorough planning, good preparation, incredible companionship between the teams and their commitment to winning.

“The secret to our success is that from the beginning, the teams communicated with each other, worked together, and moved around without distinguishing between individual teams.”

Given that angling is not a spectator sport, the NLTBFAA would like to thank all sponsors and supporters for making the event successful: Industrial Control Engineering, BDO Walvis Bay, Indongo Toyota, Lewcor, Standard Bank Insurance Brokers, Bank Windhoek Okahandja, Namibia Lubrication Systems, ITR and Outdoor Centre.
