Ghana’s weightlight lifting champion, Christian Amoah has set his eyes on qualification to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, after winning three gold medals at the 2019 African Junior Championship in Uganda.

He did not travel to the tournament with his coach, but managed to grab the ultimate through determination, discipline and the desire to win.

The champion from Ghese in Accra said it has not been easy to train and compete.


He appealed to the government to financially support national athletes.

He also urged more women to participate in sports.

Amoah thanked the Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC) president and the Ghana Weightlifting Federation President, Ben Nunoo Mensah for his support and advice.
