I suppose Algeria will do better this time, but can they "catch" South Africa? Coverage of the 2003 (on internet) was very bad. Hardly any results and no photo's. I hope Algeria will do better this time. The 2005 Arag Games in Algeria were only reported in Arab, so a French website is already a huge improment.

Read on www.postzambia.com:

Govt starts consultations on 2011 All Africa Games

THE Ministry of Sport, Youth and Child Development has begun consultations on whether or not Zambia should host the 2011 All-Africa Games.

Ministry permanent secretary Robert Samakai said in an interview yesterday that the ministry was holding consultations as the 2011 All-Africa Games would coincide with the presidential and general elections that would fall in the same year.

“Obviously we have to look at this matter but a decision has not yet been made yet. We are carrying out consultations as these two are serious matters,” Samakai said.

Zambia in 2005 earned the right to host the 2011 All- Africa Games after the last minute withdrawal of other bidders during the Supreme Council for Sport in Africa meeting in Algeria.

But a visiting International Olympic Committee (IOC) expert last year said Zambia would need at least US$ 30 million to successfully host the 2011 All-Africa Games.

Essar Gabriel, an IOC consultant who is in Zambia to attend a workshop on the Games, said most of the countries that have hosted the event before have spent a similar amount.

He said the amount fluctuated between US$30 million to US$100 million depending on its size thus Zambia will spend almost the same.

Gabriel however, pointed out that countries that were to host the games like Algeria in 2007 and Zambia in 2011 should not look at the costs but should focus on the benefits that come with the events.

Then sport minister George Chulumanda noted that government was aware of the huge costs to host the game but was determined to host it.

He said the hosting of Africa’s biggest sports competition would give Zambia a chance to build new sports infrastructure.

The quadrennial All-Africa Games is the biggest sporting event in Africa that involves different kinds of sports including those that are defunct in the country like softball and handball.

The Ceremonies would be held in the July 5, 1962 Stadium. I'm not sure about the other venues used in the Games.

Please see my post......All venues are mentioned. If you visit the website you can find the sportsprogramme with all venues.

Yeah, but the sports and venue names aren't in english, there are no seating capacities, and why is athletics held in a different stadium than July 5 Stadium? It has an athletics track, too! Please correct the first two errors.

This comes from the "official" programme on the website, which isn't very informative, by the way. I hope this gets better, the coming days (weeks).....Till now I cannot find more specific information.

Half-way through these Games, the host nation of Algeria is running away from the rest of the competition by winning over 100 medals so far. What is got to be of concern is that Zambia, host nation of the next All-Africa Games in 2011, has only just won 2 bronze medals so far.

If Algeria can keep there lead in the medal standing, it would be the first time they top the medal standing at the All-African games.

I asked the question about Morocco on a Algerian forum about these Games and this is the translation of the French answer. Excuse me for the bad translation, but this is the I can get:

Why the national emblem of Morocco float does among those of the participating countries to the African Plays of Algiers? The question deserves to be put for the simple reason that this country does not take part in these tournaments since its withdrawal of the late Organization of African Unity (OAU and current African Union), in 1984, following the admission of the Western Sahara in membership of this continental authority. Admittedly, Morocco forms part of Africa, but the organizers of the African Plays did not have to put its flag at this occasion, because they are governmental plays, under the aegis of the African Union and the direction of the higher Council of the sport in Africa (CSSA), authorities which Rabat has voluntarily boycotted for several decades.

Website is much better than when I last visited, but English could (and should) be used with French and English. Better than past All Africa Games with video to boot.

Algeria just crashed out in men's soccer in group play after Zambia scored a late equalizer in Group B play, finishing third and out of the single-elimination contention. All of the success the Algerians are enjoying as hosts, this has got to be one of the major low points for them.

BBC: Algeria Crashes Out In Soccer As Hosts

It does seem a little odd when Algeria is hording more medals than Afrique Du Sud, the most industrialized and overall deeply talented and organized African sports nation, at this point.

Zimbabwean Kirsty Coventry is already among the biggest stars of the 2007 All Africa Games. She just got herself today more gold at the pool by winning for Zimbabwe the women's 4x200m IM over South African Jessica Pengelly setting a new All Africa Games record. Already Coventry earned gold in 200m backstroke, 50m backstroke, 100m backstroke, 800m freestyle, 400m IM, and the 200m dos. She has also got silver in the 4x200m free and the 100m breaststroke.

The good times keep coming for Algeria--Salim Iles set a new All African record in front of his hometown crowd by winning the men's 50m freestyle. Yacine Gori won gold in the men's Karate individual kumite (under 75kg).

South Africa's Suzan Van Biljon won gold in the women's 50m breaststroke over Algerians Kouzma Amira and Larmi Meriem with a new AA record of 32.62. Kenya's Jason Dunford surprisingly won the men's counterpart.

Despite all this at the pool, it was almost marred by a rowdy crowd throwing three empty bottles onto it.

Tunisia's women, made up of Ines Boubaker, Mariem Fazzani, and sisters Hela and Serra Busbes, won gold in fencing over Egypt yesterday. Their countryman Mathlouthi Ahmed brought home gold in the men's 200m IM on that same day. These two gold medals help Tunisia threaten South Africa for second place in the medal count.

Congo, Angola, Algeria, and Mozambique all advanced from Group A in men's basketball.

Ghana's Metja Fetri was disqualified for failing a drug test in weightlifting.

I'm surprised that Supersport in South Africa isn't showing any of this back to South Africans in at least a couple of its channels. SABC?
