Ghana’s 4×100 men’s relay team has indeed made a swift and impressive dash to secure their place in the upcoming 2024 Paris Olympic Games.

After a heart-stopping moment during the World Relay Championships in the Bahamas, where they dropped the baton on Day One, the team bounced back with a vengeance.

 

On Day Two, they clinched first place in Heat Two with a season-best time of 38.29 seconds, ensuring their automatic qualification for the Olympics. This remarkable feat was achieved with individual times of Ibrahim Fuseini clocking 10.69 seconds, Isaac Botsio at 9.13 seconds, Benjamin Azamati at 9.35 seconds, and Joe Paul at 9.12 seconds. The team’s success is a testament to their resilience and determination, especially after a previous stumble.

Their triumph in the Bahamas not only secured their Olympic spot but also avenged a loss against their eternal rivals, Nigeria, in the 2023 African Games. This victory is a significant milestone for Ghana’s athletics, setting the stage for what promises to be an electrifying performance in Paris.

As they prepare to represent their nation on the world stage, the team carries with them the hopes and support of their compatriots back home. Their journey from dropping the baton to clinching a spot in the Olympics is a true testament to the spirit of sports and the power of determination.

The Minister of Youth and Sports, Mustapha Ussif, is not too happy with Ghana’s Amputee Football team, the Black Challenge. According to reports, the Minister has criticized the team for accepting donations from external sources without consulting his office first.

This criticism came after the team received a $10,000 donation from former President John Mahama, who is also a presidential hopeful for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), on July 12, 2024. The Minister’s main point of contention seems to be that the team should have first engaged with his office before accepting any external donations.

He stated, “When you come after the successes and there’s anything, the first point of contact is this office [MoYS]. “It’s not all doom and gloom for the team, though. They recently won the 2024 African Amputee Football Cup of Nations (AAFCON) in Egypt, successfully defending their title.

So, while there might be some political drama behind the scenes, the team’s on-field performance is something to be proud of! In the end, it’s a reminder that even in the world of sports, politics can sometimes play a role.
