The international organization for sports in Africa held its electoral General Assembly in Cairo this week
For Rugby Africa this is an important representation on the continental level and Khaled Babbou, President of Rugby Africa, stated: “I am very pleased that the General Assembly re-elected me to the Executive Board of AASC and I wish to thank all members for their continued trust and support. For Rugby Africa in particular, this is a great opportunity to be at the table of this important African Association. We are the fastest growing sport on the continent and our representation at the African Games, Mediterranean and Regional Games is crucial for a successful strengthening of rugby and sports in general. AASC plays a key role in relationships with sport governing bodies and among others, the Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa (ANOCA) and its President Mustapha Berraf. I am looking forward to drive the promotion and development of sport in Africa through my presence at the AASC Executive Board.”
