Congo for the All African Games, Foroyaa Sport can report.
Majority of participating countries have long flown to Brazzaville but
the Gambia athletics team was kept lagging for financial reason.Selected Gambian athletes-based in Senegal flocked into Banjul last
week to make the departing contingent only to be told the process of
airlifting them is yet to be finalised.
However the outfit, comprising Adama and female athlete Gina Bass left
yesterday and will be taking a flight via Dakar today according to a
source. Efforts to reach NSC Council’s Executive Director Marcel Mendy
and the Gambia Athletics Association’s Capi Joof to confirm the
departure proved vain.
