The National Paralympic Committee (NPC) of Ghana has invited six top para-athletes and a coach for camping at Cape Coast from April 9th 2021 to May 2nd 2021.

A letter signed by Mr Peter Adjei, General Secretary of the NPC said the camping is part of the planned pathway towards Ghana’s preparations for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.

He said the NPC is working tirelessly to arrange for the para-athletes to take part in the Paris Grand Prix in June.

According to him, however, not all of them will get the opportunity for the Paris trip as only five slots are available, and one must go to a female.

The selected national para-athletes who are to report to Cape Coast on 9th April at 4pm are Zinabu Issah - Discuss / Shot Putt (F55), Botsyo Nkegbe - 100m F54, Felix Acheampong – 800m / 1500m (T54), Patrick Yaw Obeng - 800m / 1500m (T54), Mclean Atsu Dzidzienyo - 200m / 400m (T53), Yusif Amadu -High Jump (T42) and Emmanuel Anum Sowah – Coach.

Mr Samson Deen, President of the NPC Ghana said every effort is being made to make the para-athletes comfortable to have a sound mind and the motivation and inspiration to perform well.

He expressed that Ghana is hoping to win a medal at Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
