“In this sport, belief and hope can often bridge the gap and get you where you need to be. When all the odds are stacked against you, belief (and luck) can take you leaps and bounds.”
“That wasn’t the case this time. Our relay missed out on qualifying for the Olympics the “easy” way. Still, where there’s a will, there’s a way. I’m beyond happy with how hard we fought and very grateful to be able to compete with these women.” Gemma Acheampong added.
There are two months left to give it my all. Two months left to take advantage of every opportunity. I already know something good is coming so I’ll keep putting my head down and working hard. On to the next one!”
The 2020 summer Olympics, also known as Tokyo 2020 is an upcoming international multi-sport event slated for July 23 to August 8, 2021, in Tokyo. 205 nations with 11,091 athletes are expected.
Gemma Acheampong is a Ghanaian-American Olympic athlete born in Chicago, Illinois, U.S. The 28-year-old holds the Ghanaian record in the rarely-contested indoor 300 meters. Also, she represented Ghana in the 4 × 100 metres relay at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
Incredibly, during the 2015 African Games held in Brazzaville, Republic of Congo, in the 4x100m relay, she took the 2nd position. She took the same position a year later in the African Championships held in Durban, South Africa in the same event.
