Grace Obour made it to the Women's 400m finals with a good run after Rose Yeboah had got the gold in high jump at the 12thAfrican Games in Morocco.

The discovery of the GNPC Ghana’s Fastest Event lady smashed her PB in the 400m and has moved on to the finals. Obour stayed focused and ran her own race in her semi-final and stayed on the heels of Nigeria's Chukwuka Ofili to advance. She'll be another one to watch heading into tomorrow

Ghana Quartet Team, Men's 4x100m Relay Squad also ran an impressive 38.80secs to qualify.

Sean Safo-Antwi headed off the race with a blazing start and handed off to Benjamin Azamati in a smooth exchange. Azamati kept up the steam before handing off to Martin Owusu-Antwi. Owusu-Antwi didn't let up and handed off to Joseph Amoah way ahead of the pack. Joseph was able to ease into a relaxed finish, saving some heat for the final.

The women's 4x100m also head into the final with a time of 44.59, the second-fastest just behind Nigeria. The quartet comprised Flings Owusu-Agyapong, Gemma Acheampong, Deborah Acquah, and Halutie Hor. They will be looking to leave it all on the track in the final.

In the Men's 100m Final, Joe Paul and Sean Safo-Antwi were impressive as they missed out on medals with 4th (10.11 secs) and 5th (10.18 secs) placing respectively.
