As we all know, the Tokyo 2020 Olympic games are still going, and some African countries happen to be part of it; including the Republic of Ghana. The activities that happen there include football, swimming, racing, boxing and many others. Indeed, Africans are making us proud especially in Ghana. A 20-year old Samuel Takyi was able to beat his Columbian counterpart in boxing. Samuel Takyi’s victory comes after 29 years of wait for this medal.
In racing, Joseph Paul Amoah is making Ghana proud. Since yesterday, Joseph has been trending on Twitter and Facebook as he makes his first debut at 2 am. Apparently, he is the first Ghanaian athlete to qualify into the men’s 200m heat semi-finals. This doesn’t surprise many as Joseph is Ghana’s 200m National Record holder, 2019 African Games 4x100m Gold medalist and finished 4th in the 2019 African Games 100m race.
Ghanaians have expressed appreciation for his efforts and so far, he is the talk of the moment. Right now, he is one of the most promising athletes in the nation. Just like his cohort Samuel Takyi is winning for Ghana in boxing, Joseph remains Ghana’s only hope for the gold medal in the race.
Today, between the hours of 11:50 am to 12:06 pm, he will run again for Ghana in lane 9. Our prayers and wishes are genuinely clear. His victory will make Ghana proud and also project his career. The youths of this country are ready and fully prepared to rally our support behind Joseph the runner.
Kindly stay glued to your television set between these hours and watch the magic that he is about to do. God bless and guide Joseph in his pursuit of victory and medal. His efforts wouldn’t be in vain; neither will our support and prayers. Let’s go Ghana. Others too had this to say to Joseph.
