The Message of AFMA's President
"It is in a spirit of esteem and friendship that I send my greetings to all African Masters athletes on the occasion of these 12th African Masters Athletics Championships.
Following a most successfull of the last African masters championships held in Ivory Coast in 2017, the attention has already now turned to Tunisia and undoubtedly it is a highlight of athletics masters in this country.
A special greeting to all those who have never stopped the practice of athletics throughout their lives. And to those who have never spared any effort for the development and promotion of this discipline in our continent.
Over the years, a strong bond had been established between AFMA and the national athletics federations; this is natural, we have the same roots and a common passion: Athletics. The practice of this sport, which taught us much when we were young, remains important at the adult age, and during this period known as the "old age". In fact,Athletics, when we continue to practice, slows down the aging process. Therefore, not only our body but also our spirit will keep their youth and fighting spirit.
In this belief, I wish to your organisation, all Masters athletes, coaches, technical officials, local organizations committees, and all those who from near and far, work for the African Masters Athletics, to always go as far as possible in the conditions that all together we will strive to make better.
