Ghana's weightlifting team is preparing feverishly for this year's London Olympics scheduled for July.

DAILY GUIDE SPORTS' trip to the Azumah Nelson Sports Complex a few days ago saw a battle ready side undergoing a series of sessions under the tutelage of Melbourne 2006 77kg gold medalist Majeti Fetrie.

The exercise, according to the Ghana Weightlifting Association's scribe  Husseini A. Addy, was a justifier for the African championship in Nairobi, Kenya, where those who will excel would be picked for the Olympics.
