  • The 7th All-Africa Games were held from September 10, 1999 to September 19, 1999 in Greater Johannesburg, South Africa. 53 countries participated in eighteen sports. Netball was included as a demonstration sport. The South Africans hosted about 25,000 visitors including 6,000 athletes and 3,000 officials from throughout the continent. The Opening Ceremonies, with dancing, African parables and Zulu warriors, was staged in an arena with less than 15 000 spectators. South Africa, which had lost to Greece for a bid for the 2004 Olympic Games was hoping to impress FIFA in hopes of landing the 2006 World Cup. Overall the games were a success, with hosts South Africa outdistancing Nigeria and Egypt in the medals race. Typical problems at the games included 600 children contracting food poisoning after being fed boxed lunches at the practice session for the Opening Ceremonies, striking laborers demonstrating outside games venues, displaying placards which read "No Wages, No All Africa Games." Women's field hockey was demoted to a non-medal event after the Nigerian team dropped out of the tournament. A melee at the finish of the basketball game between Angola and Egypt forced police to escort the Egyptian team from the court. Haile Gebreselassie, the world record holder in the 5,000 and 10,000 meter runs opted out of the games for health reasons, depriving the games organizers of one of the biggest drawing cards of the games. Despite the difficulties IOC President Juan Antonio Samaranch, praised South Africa's organization of the Games, saying "this shows that you can organize big events." Olympic stars Maria de Lurdes Mutola (athletics-800 m), Penny Heyns (swimming), Gete Wami (athletics, 10000 m) all starred in the women's events. South African pole vaulter Okkert Brits won his second African Games gold medal. Assefa Mezgebu of Ethiopia won the men's 10000 m. Cameroon beat Zambia 4-3 on penalty kicks to win the football finale. (en)

  • I VII Giochi panafricani si tennero dal 10 settembre 1999 al 19 settembre 1999 a Johannesburg, Sudafrica. Vi parteciparono 53 nazioni. Il netball fu incluso come sport dimostrativo. I partecipanti furono 6000 da tutti i Paesi dell'Africa. La cerimonia d'apertura con danze, parabole africane e guerrieri zulu, fu messa in scena in un'arena con meno di 15000 spettatori. Il Sudafrica, persa la gara per l'organizzazione di Giochi della XXVII Olimpiade aveva intenzione di impressionare la FIFA nella speranza di ospitare i campionati del mondo di calcio 2006. Nel medagliere prevalse lo stesso Sudafrica, che distanziò Nigeria ed Egitto. Gli organizzatori dovettero affrontare numerosi problemi: 600 bambini con intossicazioni alimentari dopo aver mangiato il pranzo alla prova della cerimonia d'apertura, manifestazioni di lavoratori in sciopero fuori dai siti di gara, mostrando manifesti con scritto "No Wages, No All Africa Games." Il torneo femminile di hockey su prato fu retrocesso a evento senza medaglie dopo la defezione della nazionale nigeriana. Una mischia alla fine dell'incontro di pallacanestro fra Angola ed Egitto costrinse la polizia a scortare l'Egitto fuori dal campo. Haile Gebrselassie decise di rinunciare per motivi di salute, privando gli organizzatori di una delle principali stelle della manifestazione. Nonostante le difficoltà il presidente del Comitato Olimpico Internazionale Juan Antonio Samaranch, elogiò il Sudafrica. (it)
  • De zevende Afrikaanse Spelen werden gehouden van 10 september 1999 tot 19 september 1999, in Johannesburg, Zuid-Afrika. 53 landen namen deel aan deze Spelen. Zuid-Afrika wilde met deze Spelen de FIFA onder de indruk brengen van hun organisatie aangezien ze het Wereldkampioenschap voetbal 2006 naar daar wilden halen. Ook deze editie van de Spelen waren er weer een aantal typische problemen: 600 kinderen liepen een voedselvergiftiging op na het eten van een lunch tijdens de voorbereiding van de openingsceremonie, stakende arbeiders, het Nigeriaanse vrouwenhockeyteam dat zich terugtrok en een vechtpartij aan het einde van de basketbalmatch Egypte-Angola waren toch wel wat minder mooie punten aan de organisatie van deze Spelen. Juan Antonio Samaranch verklaarde aan het einde van de Spelen echter wel dat deze Spelen bewezen hadden dat Zuid-Afrika grote evenementen kan organiseren. (nl)
