Joseph Paul Amoah is currently trending in Ghana and it is not only because he had won a bronze medal for Ghana but also because his exclusion from the 4×100m men's race got the 4×100m men's team to be disqualified.
Amoah was supposed to take part of the heats of the 4×100m men's relay but he was not allowed to take part of it because he had a 200m final to compete in. He was allowed to have some rest and later participate in the 200m final in the evening.
His exclusion from the race caused team Ghana to be disqualified even though the team qualified after they finished third in the race. The team was disqualified because the team management or officials of Ghana Athletics Association failed to report this to the Commonwealth games officials.
Even though they were disqualified from taken part of the finals but Joseph Paul Amoah won a medal to make Ghanaians to forget about the disappointing the the entire team had caused.
