Reks Brobbey, the event director and chief organizer says the search is on to get sprinters for Ghana to grab medals in 100 meters at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
He already feels proud that some previous participants of the GFH like Joseph Amoah have improved tremendously and already qualified for the Olympic Games.
He was hopeful that there are many raw runners who must be unearthed and polished to become superstars.
