Team Ghana are currently on a non-residential camping at the D.G. Hathiramani Hall [Accra Sports Stadium] preparing towards the summer Olympics, but coach Ofori Asare believes that a residential camping will help him and his technical men to put the boxers in good shape.

“It’s been a long time since we won a medal,” Coach Asare said in an interview with Starr Sports.

According to the experience trainer, having the boxers camp at one venue with the required logistics will help them better than the current situation where they have to come from different locations with different means of transportation and without proper monitoring.

He further stated that the boxers are not receiving any form of allowance from the State at the moment.

Three boxers – Suleman Tetteh [Flyweight], Samuel Takyi [Featherweight], and Shakul Samir [Heavyweight] have all booked their qualifications for the Japan Olympics.
