Abeiku Jackson, Ghanaian swimmer has won a bronze medal for Ghana in the men’s 100-metre butterfly swimming competition at the ongoing and current African tournament games today 12th March 2024.

It was noted that was the second exceptional medal for the said 24-year-old professional swimmer in this year’s African Games after having had other attainments such as silver in the men’s 50-metre butterfly last Sunday.

Apparently, Abeiku was known to have a hardworking personality in his real life, as in athletics. Meanwhile, during the entire men’s 100-meter butterfly final, which was known to have been held yesterday, there seemed to be a misunderstanding, which led the officials to take a drastic decision to give swimmers the exceptional option to retake the final or keep their previous time for the said race.

Abeiku Jackson, however, decided to give himself the chance and re-swim the final, where he achieved the greatest record of 53.80s, while well-known Egypt’s Nassr Abdalla and South Africa’s Jarden Easton followed sequentially with gold and silver, respectively, keeping their real initial time known earlier.

Precisely, and despite not surpassing the rimes recorded by Egypt’s Nassr and the South African professional Easton, the two-time Ghanaian Olympic professional settled for the bronze medal exceptionally.
