Ghana Shines at GNPC-Sponsored CAA Region II Seniors Athletics Championship

The GNPC-sponsored CAA Region II Seniors Athletics Championship, hosted by Ghana at the University of Ghana Sports Stadium, concluded successfully with the Nation securing an impressive 10 gold medals.  

The two-day event attracted top athletes from across the ECOWAS sub-region, all vying for personal, national, and Olympic qualification glory.

Edwin Gadayi, reigning champion of Ghana's Fastest Human competition, reaffirmed his dominance in the men's 100-meter race, showcasing the impact of GNPC's investment in nurturing athletic talent in Ghana. The women's 4x100 relay team, featuring Hor Halutie and Janet Mensah, former and current champions of the Fastest Human competition, further highlighted GNPC's commitment to supporting the dreams of Ghanaian athletes.

Dr. Kwame Baah-Nuakoh, General Manager for Strategy & Investment at GNPC, and Head of the Local Organizing Committee (LOC), emphasized the significance of the competition as a preparatory ground for athletes ahead of the African Athletics Championships in Cameroon. He lauded GNPC's unwavering support, highlighting the Corporation's crucial role in fostering sports development and community engagement.

While the CAA Region II Championship did not offer direct qualification to the Paris Olympics, Ghana's 4x100m relay team remains the sole track and field athlete set to represent the nation at the Games in July.

The successful event serves as a testament to GNPC's commitment to supporting athletic excellence in Ghana and its dedication to empowering the Nation's sporting future.
