Team Ghana is still battling behind the ordinary to win a medal at the ongoing Commonwealth Championship in Birmingham . Joseph Paul Amoah wins Ghana’s first Commonwealth Games men’s 200m medal since 1974. It is Ghana’s first track and field medal at the Commonwealth Games since 2010.
By winning bronze in the 200m, Joseph Paul Amoah has won a first 200m medal by an African at the Games since 2006. He has also won a first 200m medal for Ghana since 1974 when George Daniels did it.
Team Ghana were disqualified early today for technical violation in the 4 by 100 men relay team. Officials have been reacting to the disqualification as they look to avoiding similar happenings in upcoming events. Ghana Athletics Association had provided explanations.
“ Ghana originally submitted its 4x100m final confirmation listing four (4) starters and a reserve about 14 hrs before the start of the race on August 5th. Joseph Amoah, who was originally listed as a starter was subsequently ruled out of participating in the semi-final of the 4x100m on the morning of August 6th. However, in what we can only describe as an unfortunate oversight, Joseph’s withdrawal was not transmitted in time to the Technical Information Center (TIC) by our coaching crew as intended before the race.”
