Our country Ghana has been consistent in sending several representatives or competitors to this renowned tournament almost every time but the consistency in winning medals has been the major set back.
Tokyo Olympics 2020 has just ended and our mother Ghana just managed to win only one medal which was a bronze medal. This bronze medal was won by a boxer called Samuel Takyi who has also convinced Ghanaians that he has a bright future because he is just 20.
Many people applauded our competitors but some mocked.
We chanced a Sarcastic post on Twitter by a Ghanaian journalist by Manasseh Azure, In the post he claimed that alot of Gold medals would have won by County if there was game of witchcraft in the Olympics.
“If the IOC introduces “abro” and “bayie” in the next Olympics, Ghana will win Gold medals”
