Zimbabwe and South Africa are on track to securing their dominance on the African continent. The two most experienced countries showed to Zambia and Malawi that they need to count on contesting for the bronze medal.
IKF All-African Championship; results of the first day
South Africa – Zambia 25-2
Malawi – Zimbabwe 4-13
Zimbabwe – Zambia 15-4
1. Zimbabwe 2- 6 (28-8)
2. South Africa 1-2 (25-2)
3. Malawi 1-0 (4-13)
4. Zambia 2-0 (6-40)
For Zimbabwe, coached by technical director Riko Kruit (NED), the wins were all the more remarkable since they only arrived in Lusaka just a few hours before their first match due to transportation problems and a closed border. For the Zambian team, coached by technical director Daniel de Rudder (BEL), the loss against Zimbabwe was very disappointing, as they clearly had counted on having a better chance.
All matches were played at the Olympic Youth Development Center in Lusaka (Zambia), under very good circumstances and a sizeable group of fans.
