Egyptians won three gold medals at the African Para Taekwondo Championships in Niamey. 

That return meant Egypt topped the medals table, while Ghana and Niger - the host nation - earned two continental titles apiece.

Cameroon was the other country represented at the top of the podium, with Marie Antoinette Dassi winning the women's K44 under-65 kilograms contest.

Dassi beat a pair of Kenyans, Linda Birita Ogato and then, in the final, Lena Muthoni Gitonga.

All events in Niamey were K44 contests.

Ghana's Patricia Kyeremaa won the women's over-65kg crown, while Salma Ali Abd Al Moneem Hassan took victory in the women's under-52kg.

Patrice Remi was the men's over-80kg victor as the only entrant, while Mounkaila Karimou Daouda won Niger's other gold medal at under-63kg, being compatriot Oumarr Babey Aska Gaoh in the final.

Mohamed Yasser Mohamed Elsayed was another fighter to beat a home athlete in the final, seeing off Ide Oumarou Djabirou to claim an Egyptian gold medal in the men's under-58kg.

Ahmed Badawy Shabaan Mahmoud won under-80kg gold for Egypt, likewise beating a Nigerien in the final in Ousmane Soumaila.

Emmanuel Kofi Turkson won the men's under-70kg crown, overcoming Chick-Norris Kongo from the Central African Republic in the final.

Senegal and Ivory Coast also won medals at the African Para Taekwondo Championships.
