A ten-man Ghanaian contingent will today leave the country to participate in the 2021 World Athletics Relays at the Silesian Stadium in Chorzów, Poland this weekend.

Ghana is entering the competition with the sole aim of making a statement in the 4x100m relays while booking qualification for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games in Japan.

Representing Ghana in the men’s relays are; Joseph Paul Amoah, Benjamin Azamati, Sean Safo-Antwi, Joseph Oduro Manu, and Edwin Gadayi.

The female team is made up of Hor Halutie, Janet Amponsah, Flings Owusu-Agyapong, Gemma Acheampong, and Latifa Ali.

The 2021 World Athletics Relays in Silesia offers the Ghana female team the opportunity to make a back-to-back cameo at the Olympics having appeared at the Rio Summer Olympics in Brazil four years ago.

Despite not having enough time to prepare ahead of the event and a possible late arrival, team Ghana, though young have got the necessary experience and skill set that can propel them to win at least a medal and also make it to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

The 2021 World Athletics Relays will start on Saturday, May 1 to Sunday, May 2.
