Ghana’s top sprinter coming to AP Invitational
Ghana’s top sprinter, Joseph Amoah, is heading to the fourth annual Aliann Pompey Invitational, scheduled for Saturday (July 6) at the National Track and Field Centre, Leonora.
Amoah is having an outstanding 2019 season with a season’s best time in the 100 metres of 10.01s that he ran on June 5 in Texas. On the same day, Amoah also produced another season’s best, this time at the 200 metres with a time of 20.08s.
Guyana’s national records in the Men’s 100 is 10.12s (Adam Harris) and the 200 metres is 20.14s (James Gilkes).
With just a matter of days to go, some of the Guyanese stars will have some time to get in better form to face the Ghanaian superstar, which should make for an interesting 100m with Emmanuel Archibald and Winston George recently running 10.26s and 10.36s respectively at the National Senior Championships on June 29.
Amoah joins Indian 110m hurdler Siddanth Thingalaya as the overseas entrants thus far at the Aliann Pompey Invitational.
