Ghanaian Athletes 2011

Postby kebashorificatious » Mon Jun 20, 2011 12:53 pm

This thread is dedicated to Ghanaian athlets participating in worldwide tournaments in 2011.

Some of them are making rounds in foreign media, but are yet to be mentioned locally.

Dutch media reports a lot on long jumper Gaisah. He lives and trains in Rotterdam. His PB is 8.34m ....his SB is 8.26 (May 29 in Hengelo)

very good considering this is his 1st season after suffering that horrific injury in Beijing 2008.

ONLY ONE GHANAIAN ATHLETE FOR IAAF WORLD YOUTH CHAMPIONSHIP

Ghana will be represented by only one athlete at the 2011 International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) World Youth Championship scheduled from 6-10 July in Lille, France.

Shadrack Adu Gyamfi of the Kumasi Anglican Senior High School will fly high the flag of Ghana at the global athletics event designed for athletes of not more than 17-years.

Bawa Fuseini, General Secretary of the Ghana Athletics Association (GAA) told GNA Sports in Accra that Adu Gyamfi will compete in the 200 and 400 metres.

He explained that the 17-year old was the only qualified athlete during the National Championship held last April at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science Technology, Kumasi sports oval.

The GAA Scribe said that participation in the event is by qualification and Adu Gyamfi is the only Ghanaian who made the qualifying mark.

He ran a personal best of 22:16secs. in the 200 metres and 48:49secs. in the 400 metres.

Adu Gyamfi is expected to leave for France on Tuesday to participate in the championship.

The seventh edition of the biennial event will bring together the finest young athletes across the world to battle for honours in track and field events.
