Ghanaian high jumper, Rose Yeboah, has won the country’s first gold medal at the 2019 African Games.
The 19-year-old University of Cape Coast student cleared a height of 1.84m, a Personal Best for the Ecowas U-20 Champion.
The victory caps off a wonderful 2019 for Yeboah, who also won gold at both the Ecowas U-20 Championships in Abidjan and the African University Olympic Games in Egypt.
Yeboah now ranks 4th in the all-time Ghana high jump records behind record-holder Abigail Kwarteng (1.87m), Margaret Simpson (1.85m) and Ruky Yeboah (1.85m).
Record holder, Abigail Kwarteng, who had been battling shin and splits this year, missed out on a medal.
