The Alhaji Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium will be the venue for the first meet of this year’s Ghana Fastest Human Competition which is sponsored by GNPC and other corporate bodies.
The maiden edition of the Ghana’s Fastest Human project was held in 2013. The championship has produced many talents, some of who have represented and won medals for the country at the international level.
The annual championships are held across the country, with the regions grouped into zones. After the first of the 2020 Championship at the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium, Tamale on February 29, the second meet will be on Saturday, March 14 in Cape Coast, followed by the Accra Open on Saturday, May 23 at the University of Ghana with the grand finale scheduled for the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, Kumasi on Saturday, June 20.
So far, only Joseph Amoah has qualified for the Tokyo Olympic Games, and other athletes want to qualify, especially Barnabas Aggerh who won the Tamale meet last year and hopes to defend his title as the northern sector fastest human.
According to Reks Brobbey, founder of the Ghana Fastest concept, here would be age category races for both male and female athletes. He prayed for a successful event as they have prepared adequately for the event.
