Sierra Leone’s Karate team has been ranked in fourth place after securing eight bronze medals at the just concluded 3rd edition of the Zone II Championship for Cadets, juniors and hopefuls in Conakry, Guinea.
After two days of actions in the Guinean capital of Conakry, Sierra Leone finished behind the champions, Senegal who walked away with 12 gold and 5 silver medals and Mali in second with 10 gold, 8 silver and 5 bronze medals.
President of the Sierra Leone Karate Federation, Victor E Amara who was eyeing gold medals in this year’s Championship was however not disappointed with his fighters and their performance.
He said: “For us it was great to compete and get our names on the medal table. Even though we were unable to lay our hands-on gold but the fighters did well.”
In 2016, Sierra Leone returned home with eights bronze medals with Simeon Daemoh, Joseph Farmer both winning two bronze medals and Abdul Koroma walked home with three bronze while Suleiman Bah secured a bronze.
