Nadia Eke qualified for the International Association of Athletics Federation world champs in Qatar. The triple jumper also qualified for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games with a new national record.
The 2016 African champion broke the triple jump national record. This too with a huge personal best of 14.33m (+0.8). And her first jump at the 2019 Racer/Adidas Grand Prix in Jamaica.
The old record stood at 13.93m which Miss Eke herself set back in 2017. The 26-year-old former Columbia University student becomes the 3rd Ghanaian to qualify. The individual events of the World Champs will be in Qatar. And this is starting in late September.
