Abderrahmane Tamada from Tunisia on Saturday pocketed the gold in men's pole vault of the ninth All Africa Games in Algiers, capital of the North African country Algeria.

At the 5.00 meters level, the competition has become a tough one between Tamada and Senegal's Karim Sene as all the other participants did not pass the level.

When Tamada flew over 5.05m in his second attempt, Sene who did not accomplish that made a brave decision to choose the level of 5. 10 m instead of making the third attempt in 5.05m to challenge Tamada. He succeeded and won laud applause from the audience.

In the following development, Tamada also did not let the watchers down and passed the level of 5.10m directly in his first try, but both Tamada and Sene did not fly over the level of 5.15m.

Due to Tamda succeeded in his second attempt on the level of 5. 05m while Sene did not accomplish that, the Tunisian pole vaulter got the gold. The bronze went to Hamdi Dhouibi from Tunisia with the level of 4.90m.

Sene was the bronze winner of the men's pole vault in the 2003 Abuja All-Africa Games.

The ninth All Africa Games in Algiers is scheduled to end on July 23.
