Ghana won no medal at the 18th World athletics Championships in Eugene.

The just-ended World athletics championship was full of drills and thrills. Quite a number of athletes bettered their season’s records and personal bests: World-leading records were set and world records, broken. For many countries, the world athletics championships is a platform for them to showcase the athletic prowess of their country, hence resources and time are invested into the preparation of athletes to represent their respective countries. While some countries have had an impressive run with the championships, others have nothing to write home about regarding their performance-Ghana is one of these countries.

During the 18th World athletics championships in Eugene, Ghana sent only 6 athletes to compete for the country in the individual 100m events, 4 by 100m team event and the women’s long jump event.

Benjamin Azamati, Joseph Paul Amoah, Sean Safo Antwi, Emmanuel Yeboah(alternate) and Joseph Manu Oduro were the athletes selected to represent the country in the individual 100m races and the 4 by 100m races. The national record holder for the women’s long jump, Deborah Acquah was selected to compete in the women’s long jump event.

The sprinters failed to qualify for their individual events but pulled off a better performance in the 4 by 100m relay race. The team qualified in their heats with the U.S and Canada to secure places in the finals but fell short of a medal win as Ghana placed 5th.

Deborah Acquah couldn’t make it through the qualifying stages as she placed 9th with a jump of 6.46 meters.

As to whether Ghana’s story- in terms of performance, at International sporting platforms would change for the better, time is the only determinant of this. They might show a better performance in the upcoming Commonwealth games scheduled from the 28th of July to the 8th of August, 2022 in Birmingham.
