Top sports leader Malumbete Ralethe has been appointed to convene a crucial International University Sports (Fisu) commission.

Fisu is the world governing body for university sport.

Ralethe was appointed convenor of the protocol and medal awarding commission at the Fisu executive committee meeting in Belgrade last weekend.

At the same meeting, Ralethe was reappointed to serve on a commission appointed by Fisu to evaluate cities bidding to host the 2015 World Student Games.

The board member of the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee is also on the executive of Fisu.

"It is a great honour by Fisu to be appointed to head a commission and also assist in evaluating the cities bidding to host the World Student Games in 2012," said Ralethe.

Ralethe, a renowned Limpopo medical doctor, was also a member of the Fisu commission evaluating the 2013 World Student Games bidding process.

Kazan, a city in Russia where Bafana Bafana midfielder MacBeth Sibaya is plying his trade, will host the tournament.

Some of the countries who will be bidding for the 2015 World Student Games include Brazil, Canada, Poland, Korea and Spain.

"The bidding process opened on September 1 and closes on March 15. Countries are busy finalising the names of the cities they are putting forward," said Ralethe.

l The Fisu executive committee has also resolved to withdraw six optional sports from a list of 21 codes of the World Student Games.
