Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Athletics Association [GAA], Mr. Bawa Fuseini has said that his outfit would like Team Ghana to camp in Europe ahead of the upcoming Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games in Japan.

Ghana’s quartet team [men] – Sean Sarfo-Antwi, Benjamin Azamati-Kwaku, Joseph Oduro Manu, and Joseph Paul Amoah ran 38.79 seconds [.790 m/s], finishing second to the Netherlands in heat 2 at the 2021 Word Athletics Relays in Poland on Saturday, May 1, earning them automatic qualification to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

But, Bawa Fuseini believes that for Ghana to go and make a mark in Japan the team would have to be worked on, hence the camp in Europe for six or eight weeks.

“We’ll like to camp the athletes in Europe for six to eight weeks because there are a lot of competitions in Europe and the registration is less expensive than the US,” he told Romeo Oduro on UTV Ghana.

“If we are able to camp them in Europe and give them the necessary training I believe they can win us at least a medal,” Mr. Bawa added.

Apart from the men’s 4×100 relay team, three other Ghanaian athletes – Nadia Eke [Triple Jumper], Joseph Paul Amoah [sprinter], and Benjamin Azamati-Kwaku [sprinter] have also qualified for the Japan 2020 Olympic Games to be held in Tokyo.
