2007 All-Africa Games

The 9th All-Africa Games took place in July 11–23 2007 in Algiers, the capital city of Algeria. Algiers is the first city to hold All-Africa Games for a second time. The 1978 All-Africa Games were held there. Besides Algeria, only Nigeria has hosted the event twice, but with different host cities.

Competitions

The following 24 sports were competed:

Paralympic sports:

  • Athletics
  • Basketball
  • Goalball

Three disciplines, Baseball, Softball and Field hockey were dropped by the hosts, since these sports are hardly played in Algeria and consequently lack suitable facilities . The hockey competition would have doubled as qualifier for the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, thus African Hockey Federation organised a separate olympic qualifying tournament in Nairobi, Kenya, held simultaneously with the All-Africa Games . Water Polo was not competed due to lack of teams . It was supposed to be an Olympic qualifier.
