Ghana’s Nadia Eke Sets New National Record To Qualify For World Champs

Ghanaian triple jumper, Nadia Eke, has qualified for the 2019 IAAF World Championships in Qatar and the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games with a new national record in the Triple Jump.

The 2016 African Champion demolished the triple jump national record with a huge Personal Best of 14.33m (+0.8) on her first jump at the 2019 Racers/Adidas Grand Prix in Jamaica.

The old record stood at 13.93 m which Nadia set herself back in 2017.

The 26-year-old former Columbia University student becomes the 3rd Ghanaian in the individual events to qualify for the World Championships to be held in Qatar starting late September. She joins sprinters Josephine Anokye and Joseph Amoah, who made the qualification marks last month.

The Ghana women’s 4x100m relay team have also booked their tickets to the global showpiece.
