Mr. Ben Nunoo Mensah President of Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC) has said boxing and weightlifting have the potential to win medals for the nation at the next Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.

“Winning an Olympic medal won’t be easy, but our boxers and weightlifters would lead our agenda at the Games. In sports, miracles can happen, but I’m sure the Black Bombers and the Black Cranes would carry our hope at the event.

In an interview with the media, the experienced Sports Administrator, Marketing and Insurance Consultant, the boxers can perform at the world-class level if they are given the opportunity to train with the best in Cuba or Eastern Europe.

Mr. Nunoo Mensah who doubles as the President of Ghana Weightlifting Federation (GWF) feels the national weightlifters, notably Forrester Osei and Christian Amoah were also capable of reaching the medal zone if they get the required resources, environment, and facilities for training.

He appealed to the government to invest in the athletes just as infrastructure being built for full sports promotion and development.

The GOC President commended the government for putting up sports complexes in the regions and the decision to build an Olympic size stadium for the African Games.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
