After coming sixth in their heat at the ongoing 2020 Tokyo Olympics on Thursday morning, Team Ghana qualified for the final of the men’s 4x100m relay.
Ghana was represented by sprinters Sean Safo-Antwi, Benjamin Azamati, Emmanuel Yeboah and Joseph Paul Amoah.
After finishing the race in an astounding time of 38.08 seconds, the quartet set a new national record.
During the 1997 World Championships in Greece, the quartet of Abu Duah, Eric Nkansah, Aziz Zakari, and Emmanuel Tuffour set the previous national record of 38.12 seconds.
The achievement of Team Ghana is much worth it and very remarkable by the fact that they finished ahead of one of the favorites, Team USA.
China took first place in the heat, followed by Italy, Canada, and Germany in that order.
Meanwhile, in the final, slated for 3:50 GMT on Friday, Team Ghana will compete in lane 2 against Germany, Canada, Jamaica, the United Kingdom, China, Italy, and Japan.
