Senegal snatched its first athletics gold at the ninth All Africa Games on Thursday afternoon after its jumper Ndiss Kaba Badji won in the men's triple jump with a leap of 16.80 meters.

Badji, born in 1983, led the entire event and defeated other competitors in a convincing fashion. He took an early victory when he jumped a leap of 16.80 meters in the second attempt, a big- margin enabled him to spare the other four jumping attempts left.

Badji has just finished his two-year competition ban after being tested positive for androstenedione in an out-of-competition test by the International Amateur Athletic Federation.

The failure of drug test resulted in a suspension of competition between June 2005 and May 2007 for Badji, who is also a long jumper.

Cameroon's jumper Hugo Mamba took the silver medal with a leap of 16.61 meters at the fourth-attempt jump.

Defending champion Andrew Owusu of Ghana finished in the third place after leaping a 16.32-meter mark.

Owusu, born in 1978, had won twice the gold at the quadrennial All Africa Games, in 2003 and 1999 respectively.
