Ghana’s 4x100metres male relay team are aiming to make an impression at the World stage by reaching the finals at the IAAF Championship.
The team, currently ranked 13th in the World will be in the tracks on Friday in the Men’s Heats as they battle for a place in the semis and eventually to the final.
Having won Gold at the African Games in Morocco last Month, the team have been tipped to make a huge statement at the World stage.
Joseph Paul Amoah, a member of the 4x100metres relay team says they have set a target to reach the final.
“I expected that from people because we cannot be African champions and come to the World Championships and not make the finals,” he spoke to Citi Sports.
“The first goal for us is to make it to the finals and when we get there, we want to get a medal. We are working and putting things in place for that to happen.
“Everyone is highly motivated. We are trying to get a medal and that is our focus right now.”
Meanwhile the Women’s relay team who painfully missed out on a medal due to a baton drop at the African Games will also compete in the Women’s division.
