Marie Josee Talou has completed the 100/200 metre sprint title double at the All-Africa Games in Brazzaville.

The Ivory Coast pace queen raced to gold over the longer distance in the Republic of Congo's capital today, crossing in a time of 22.57sec.

That was enough to see the 26-year-old top the podium ahead of two Nigerians, with Ngozi Onwumere taking silver in 23.24 and the bronze going to Lawrette Ozoh in 23.37.

Talou had earlier won the 100m in Brazzaville, clocking a time of 11.02 to win which beat Nigerian star Blessing Okagbare's Championship record.
