The truth always hurts but there is no coaching expertise in Ghana Athletics federation, Bawa Fuseini ; general secretary of Ghana Athletics Association has confirmed in a discussion with West FM. He added it’s the main reason most athletes are pushed out of the country given a year or two, they improve and qualify to the Olympics making their counterparts in Ghana below their standard.
Bawa Fuseini has revealed, they are limited as an Association because when courses are organized and coaches don’t qualify, nothing can be done about it. The number of athletes keep decreasing from time to time and according to him, most of the athletes are in Central, Ashanti, Greater Accra and Western region.
He was forthright about no issues at the International level left for an amount of $500,000 stimulus package to be shared among African athletes which they complained not being enough. They were told an additional sum will be added with a condition of excluding first six ranked countries from the list.
In light of Coronavirus, the technical team is yet to decide on the agenda before the year ends since everything they scheduled has been canceled. The government has authorized non-contact sports to kickstart trainings but not competitions.
