Promising South Africa sprinter Ncincilili Titi has announced his decision to quit athletics after struggling to overcome a medical problem.
US-based Titi wrote on his Twitter page “Time I hang up my spikes, focus on other things, I guess till further notice…”
“Would be lovely if ASA or SASCOC would step in, but sadly that’s not my reality. I do have other passions so that’s where my energy is gonna be going now”.
The 25-year-old who is the fifth-fastest South African of all time also stated that he was unable to invest “any more resources” into trying to overcome his injury.
Titi was a member of the SA 4x100m team that set the 38.35sec national record at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
