Handball: Nigeria crowned champs!

Rwanda’s U-20 handball team finished fourth at the Africa Challenge Trophy after losing to Senegal 37-39 on Sunday at Petit-Stade Remera in Kigali.  

Senegal started the better side, getting a 19-16 lead at half time before eventually sealing the game 39-37 to win the third place. 

Meanwhile, Nigeria were crowned Africa Challenge Trophy champions after narrowly beating defending champions DR Congo in the final 27-26.
