Ghana Placed At 15th Position At 2019 African Games


Ghana is currently placed at the 15th position at the 2019 African Games, with just a day to end the competition.

Team Ghana’s position is as a result of 13 medals picked from the competition, which is scheduled to close on Saturday, August 31, at the Moulay Abdellah Sports Complex, in Rabat, Morocco.

In all Ghana had 13 medals from three disciplines; athletics (track and field), boxing and weightlifting.

Disciplines like table tennis, tennis, beach volley ball, cycling, judo, taekwondo, fencing, karate do, football and swimming could not get medals, but did quite well.


Weightlifting gathered eight medals, made up of seven bronze medals and one silver medal, whilst athletics ended the medal haul with five medals made up two bronze medals, one silver medal and two gold medals. Boxing got one bronze.

However, with one more day to end the competition, Ghana’s position on the table might change if any of the countries below comes up with a medal.


The number of medals at the 12th African Games is short of four from the African Games held in Brazzaville, Congo, four years ago.

The actual and final position of Ghana would be determined on Saturday, August 31, when all activities comes to a close.
