Highs and Lows of African Athletics Championships

Kenya who came with a strong team and loads of complaints won a total of 11 gold, six silver and two bronze medals. South Africa won nine gold 13 silver and eight bronze medals. Nigeria settled for third place with nine gold, five silver and five bronze medals.  However, the championships brought with it sad tales such that it saw the fastest woman in the world and Cote d'Ivorian Marie Josee Ta Lou tweeting, "I think this is my first and last time to come to Nigeria to compete!". Her statement is an end-result of her team's inability to get connecting flights from Lagos to Asaba for hours.
