Team Ghana Paralympians head to Olympic Village

Ghana’s Paralympic team have moved to the Olympic village seven days before the start of the 2012 Paralympic games. The team set to intensify training whilst in the Olympic Village in a bid to prepare and equip themselves for the upcoming games.

The ‘Team Ghana’ contingent is made up of the 2010 Commonwealth games bronze medallist, Anita Fodjour and Botyso Nkegbe (athletics), Alem Mumuni and Charles Narh Teye (powerlifting). The team were accompanied by the technical team made up of the Technical Director of the Ghana Cycling Federation, Shabaan Mohammed, George King Ferguson and Alexandria Main.

The General Secretary of the NPC Ignatius Elletey stated that, ‘the team is expected to intensify its preparations whilst at the village and was confident Ghana will put up an improved performance’. Mr Elletey also confirmed that the rest of the delegation will leave Ghana on Monday the 27th of August for London to lend their support to Team Ghana to ensure their success.

This is Ghana’s last chance to secure some much sort after medals and accreditation from the London 2012 Olympics.

Team GUBA are firmly behind the Paralympians as they fly the flag for Ghana.

To show our support, GUBA dedicates its Olympics song to the Paralympians.
