Ghana to participate in World Athletics Relays

Ghana will compete in the 2024 World Athletics Relays championship at the Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium in Nassau, Bahamas on May 4-5, 2024.

The event is a crucial Olympic qualifier for the world’s top-per­forming athletes from more than 40 countries, and Ghana seeks to use same to qualify the men’s 4 x 100m relay team to the Olympic Games in Paris, France.

The 4x100m men relay team, ranked 15th in the World, con­tinues to build points or secure an automatic qualification having recently ran in the 2023 African Games and the Penn Relays plac­ing second on both occasions to Nigeria and Jamaica.

Benjamin Azamati, who missed the Penn Relays, has joined Ibrahim Fuseini, Isaac Botsio, Sean Safo-Antwi and Joseph Paul Amoah to hopefully secure a qual­ification.

Ghana Athletics president, Mr Bawa Fuseini, has expressed optimism that the performance of the sprinters currently was a surety that individual athletes and the relay team would surely qualify for the Olympics before the June window closes.

He continues to encourage corporate Ghana to invest in sup­porting the athletes in order to run in the qualifying championship. -ghanathletics.org
