The 2022 final edition of the GNPC Ghana Fastest Human competition came off at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium last Saturday where Janet Mensah from the Ashanti Region and Barnabas Aggreh of UDS in the Northern Region proved that they have what it takes to be winners.
Barnabas who run his personal best beat Solomon Hammond and Edwin Gadayi who were tipped before the race.
Janet Mensah also shocked Grace Obuor of the University of Ghana in the female 100 metres lineup to become the new sprint queen.
There were races for Under 18 and Under 15 Boys and Girls. The winners were awarded prizes; medals, certificates, trophies from the President Nana Akufo Addo and products of sponsors.
Present were top officials of the sponsors and Athletics fans.
Great gratitude must be awarded to Reks Brobbey and Dr. Kwame Baah Nuako for their deep interest in athletics preparations towards the African Games 2023 in Ghana.
