Gemma Acheampong, the young Ghanaian female sprinter who took part in the 2019 World Relays in Yokohama has expressed her happiness in competing with the best in the world.

This is her message after Ghana’s team placed 7th.


“My first World Relays have officially ended and I couldn't come away feeling happier or prouder of this team. I'm honored to have been given this opportunity to compete with these incredibly amazing women!
Thank you for all the love and support! This was a scramble to put together, but we managed to make a series of bad circumstances come together for the chance of a lifetime.
I can't help but leave with a new drive not just for World Championships, but also for #Tokyo2020! This experience is almost indescribable, but look out for a blog post where I try my best to put this all into words”
