posted 23 Jun, 16 • Category: News • Comments: 0















Atsu Nyamadi won Ghana’s first medal at the 20th African Seniors Championships at the Kings Park Athletics Stadium in Durban-South Africa on Thursday after taking silver in the men’s decathlon on the second day of the event.


Ranked third with 3895 points after the first day of the combined event, Atsu put up a strong performance on the final day, winning the javelin throw and discus throw events with 63.48m and 43.26m respectively.


He has thus won his third international medal for Ghana in three years after previously winning bronze and silver at the 2014 African Seniors Championships and 2015 All African Games respectively.


He debuted in the decathlon at the 2012 CAA Championships in Benin and has gone on to become a major force to reckon with on the African continent. He currently holds the national decathlon record of 7800pts.


Elsewhere, sprinter Gemma Acheampong put up a spirited performance in the women’s 100m final, placing 6th in a time of 11.49s, just 0.01s short of her personal best 11.48s.


Ivorian Murielle Ahoure lived up to her pre-race ‘favourite tag’ to win the 100m as she crossed the finish line in 10.99s, followed in second place by South Africa’s Carina Horn in 11.07 while another Ivorian sprinter Marie Josee Ta Lou settled for third place in 11.15s.


Sampson Laari advances to Men’s 800m final

Laari, who is competing in his first African Championships, secured an automatic spot in the final after coming second behind Mozambique’s Albertino Mamba who won the heat in 1:48.36m while South Africa’s Jacob Rozani took third place in 1:48.48m.


In the final race, the former Ghanaian youth athlete will be coming up against the likes of Botswana’s Nijel Amos who won the other 800m semi final in a very tactical race in a time of 1:49.91m.


Men’s 4x100m relay team qualify for final


Ghana’s men’s 4x100m relay team sealed a place in the final of the 4x100m after coming 4th in Heat 2 in a time of 40.73s at the 20th African Seniors Championships at the Kings Park Athletics Stadium in Durban-South Africa on Thursday, 23rd June.


The team qualified for the final as one of the fastest losers on the day and the quartet will be coming up against Cote D’Ivoire, South Africa, Senegal, Zambia, Botswana, among others.

Vivian Mills and Akua Obeng Akrofi also exited the women’s 400m. Akrofi came last in her race in 54.49s while Mills placed 7th in 53.87s.
