Ghana emerged champions at the just ended Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Games held 16-22 June with a staggering 35-medals.

The host nation scooped the highest number of medals at the second edition of the sub-regional games aimed at promoting integration amongst member states.

Ghana led the medal table with 17 Gold, 11 Silver and nine bronze and was decorated with the honor of the most successful team at the six-day event that saw participants battling for honors in disciplines such as Athletics, Boxing, Handball, Volleyball and the Traditional Wrestling.

Perennial rivals Nigeria finished second with 13 Gold, 16 Silver and six Bronze. The Nigerians participated in all disciplines but Handball and Volleyball.

Senegal occupied third place four gold, four silver and two bronze, whilst Niger pulled out two gold, two silver and three bronze to claim the fourth position.

Cote d’Ivoire grabbed only two gold medals, with Benin in that order with one gold and two bronze. Togo also managed one gold medal.

Burkina Faso totaled three silver and three bronze, and Liberia with only one medal - silver

There were five bronze medals for Mali whilst Sierra Leone accumulated a solitary bronze to finish at the depth of the medals table.

The venues for the games were the El-Wak Stadium and Accra Sports Stadium.**

our prosperity has yet to translate success in football. why b'cos we have very incompetent and shamelessly corrupt people running the gfa. usually economic prosperity boosts success in sports. nigeria's decline is directly a result of its overall decline in its economy.
