Confirming this development after running the Two Oceans Marathon in which he finished second, Ramaala stated that if chosen, he can steer the ship of the embattled ASA in the right direction despite previously contributing to the mess the cash strapped association is in at the moment.
The 42 year old admitted that he has the backing of ASA members.
“I am going to run for office again and I am going to win. Nothing will stand in my way and I believe I am the right person to save ASA. The members like me. I can call and talk to them all the time. the members will vote for me because they believe in me. Our campaign is strong. We will officially start with our campaign this week,” Ramaala testified.
The over confident Ramaala was vice president to James Evans before the entire ASA board was disbanded by the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) due to infighting and maladministration late last year.
