The Sport and Recreation Commission has been forced to reduce the delegation to take part in the 12-day biannual Africa Union Sports Council Region 5 Youth Games scheduled for Botswana from December 5.

SRC had planned to send a 292 delegates comprising athletes, technical team, management and medical personnel, but were forced to reduce the number to 86 due to financial constraints. SRC would have needed over $850 000 for 292 delegates but now needs $640 000. Ministry of Youth, Sport, Arts and Recreation Secretary Thokozile Chitepo confirmed the development yesterday during the unveiling of Team Zimbabwe at the National Sports Stadium.

Chitepo said the selection process did not in any way mean the excluded teams were less important. She said early preparations would be made to ensure that in the ninth edition, teams would not be trimmed due to fiscal constraints.
