JOHANNESBURG — Paralympic legend Natalie du Toit has been appointed to the new board of directors at the SA Institute for Drug-free Sport (Saids).
The anti-doping body said in a statement yesterday that amputee Du Toit, a 14-time Paralympic gold medalist in swimming, was among those named to the new board following the expiry of the five-year term of the previous board. Other new members are Saids chairperson Victor Ramathesele, who was the chief medical officer for the 2010 Fifa World Cup, and Supreme Court Judge Lex Mpati. Khalid Galant, the Saids chief executive, said Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula had reappointed three incumbent board members.
