Ghana’s Benjamin Azamati and Grace Obour win Gold in UG’s annual inter Halls Athletics Games

2019 African Games bronze medalist Grace Obour won Gold in the Women’s 400metres event at the University of Ghana’s annual inter Halls athletics games.

The young lady clocked a time of 53.76s to win the race for Mensah Sarbah Hall.

Obour has been one of the fast-growing talents in Ghana Athletics after emerging as the overall best female athlete at the National Super zonals Championship early this year, a feat which ultimately earned her a scholarship to study at Ghana’s Premier University.

The 18-year-old has already started her sporting life at the University of Ghana on a good note by winning the women’s 400metres event.

She further helped her Hall to win the Women’s 4x100mteres event.

Meanwhile, Benjamin Azamati, a member of Ghana’s 4x100metres Gold winning team at the African Games and 2019 fastest human also made a time of 10.61sec to win the Men’s 100metres event for Mensah Sarbah Hall.
