It’s been lukewarm displays for the respective Gambian sides in the ongoing African Games in Morocco.
The Smiling Coast’s campaign in Rabat began with the men beach volleyball 2-1 lost to Tunisia on a day the female beach volleyball team also succumbed to Kenya 2-0.
Gambia’s male volleyball outfit recovered to send African champions Morocco packing 2-1. The female team followed suit as they eased past Benin 2-0.
On day three of their outing, Gambia’s male volleyball set up again thumped Libya 2-0. However, their qualification hinges on outcome of Morocco-Tunisia pairing.
In Judo, Abdourahman Ceesay representing Gambia bowed out of the African Games in the first round in what was his first international debut.
A similar storyline followed with Omar Jobe who also was trounced.
In another development, Gambia beach volleyball ladies rode over Algeria 2-0 and faces Sierra Leone next.
Meanwhile, queen of Gambian track Gina Bass and captain Adama Jammeh are in Morocco gearing up for athletics which begins August 25th.
