Despite an early downpour, the GNPC GFH Cape Coast Open came off successfully on Saturday with splendid performances and good times by the athletes who turned out in numbers.

UDS representative Barnabas Aggreh who recently joined the top sprinters at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham put up an amazing show to win the Seniors event in 10.04 seconds.

Iddriss Musah placed second in 10.28s. while Mustapha Bokpim took the third position in 10.34s.

The winners who stood on the podium were rewarded by the organisers and GNPC. The final race is expected to come off at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi in September.
