Lusaka, Jan 21 (IANS): The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) has inspected Zambia's two ultra-modern stadia with a view of certifying the running tracks fit to host international competitions.

The two ultra-modern stadia, the Heroes National Stadium here in Lusaka and the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola in the Copperbelt province, will be used to host international competitions, reports Xinhua.
