Olla William who is also the Youth Coordinator of the Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC) and organizer of three major relay events, namely; the National 30 km Road Baton Race, Festival of Relays and High School Campus Relay said Ghana has sports talents who must be encouraged.
He thanked companies who supported Dreamland Sports to organize the relay events.
Sprinters Benjamin Azamati, Safo-Antwi, Joseph Paul-Amoah and Joseph Manu simultaneously secured Ghana a place at Tokyo 2020 and the World Athletic Championship in Oregon, USA, it was a disappointing end to their weekend after their disqualification from the tournament.
Ghana’s team was disqualified after breaking changeover rules. The final changeover took place outside the authorized zone.
Ghana’s disqualification came as a result of a late changeover – Rule TR 24.7 between the pair of Azamati and Joseph Manu.
He also asked the Black Bombers to be very disciplined in camp and focus on what they want to achieve for themselves and the nation.
