Faye Njie, a Finland-born Gambian judoka, won the gold medal at the Abidjan African Judo Open 2023 on Saturday, June 17

Njie and Bissau Guinea’s Cesar Diogo fought hard in a long match that went to a golden score. In the end, Faye won with a beautiful ippon.

Despite already qualifying for the Paris 2024 Summer Olympics, Njie’s recent results have put him in an even better standing for the event.

The Abidjan African Open began this Saturday, June 17, 2023, and brings together 154 athletes including 101 men and 53 women from 27 countries.

The Finland-born Gambian became the first ever Olympic judoka for the Gambia when he competed at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
