Annelize Rostron Set for First Major Tournament at Tokyo Olympics

by | Apr 8, 2021

North-West University alumni, Annelize Rostron, will be one of two hockey umpiring officials to represent South Africa at the Tokyo Olympic Games in July 2021.

The 37-year-old Grade 7 Natural Science and Technology at Laerskool Mooiriver began umpiring in 2005 and has since climbed the ranks to become a world-renowned International Federation Hockey (FIH) World League official.

“My first big international tournament was in 2012 in Belgium. I had been umpiring in a lot of test hockey matches before I made the big break in an international tournament,” said Rostron in a post shared on threestreamsmedia.com

Stephan Spamer, who serves on the senior North-West hockey committee in the rules and technical portfolio, is excited about Rostron’s achievement.

“The impact will not only be great for the quality of umpiring in the province but also for coaching, to develop the skills of young umpires,” Spamer concluded.
