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 silver medalist.
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.
