Zim athlete forfeits R50 000 in SA despite winning race

Zimbabwean long-distance runner Isaac Mpofu was on Sunday disqualified by the Athletics South Africa (ASA) and forfeited R50 000 in prize money during the Durban International Marathon despite winning the race.

Mpofu had won the 42.2km run in 2:10:04 but was disqualified as he was about to be declared the winner for having one licence number.

The Zimbabwean was disqualified because he had one licence number which was placed in front of his vest but there was nothing on the back of his shirt at the finish line.

According to ASA rules, participants of the Durban International Marathon had to have two licence numbers on the day.
