Cote d’Ivoire’s men and Mali’s women won gold by beating Uganda and Democratic Republic of Congo respectively in the finals.
While Nigeria failed to keep their form from 2017, the runners-up back then, Cote d’Ivoire dominated this year’s men’s competition with a 5-0 surge, including a one-sided 14-6 win in the final against Uganda.
Mali made it back to back wins in the ladies class after defeating DR Congo in the final (19-13).
