Meet Ghana’s team to challenge the world for athletics glory

On July 22,the best young athletes from 200 countries will assemble in Eugene,Oregon for the IAAF World Youth championships and Ghana will have three of the most promising.Dasor

Ghana’s representatives of Susie Acolatse (100m,200m),Emmanuel Dasor (200m) and Ibrahim Yakubu (110m hurdles) represent a significant decrease from the 12 competitors Ghana sent to the last championships in Barcelona.

Just entering her 16th year,U.S born Acolatse will finally make her international debut for Ghana after a lack of funding kept her away from an international meet last year.

A powerful sprinter,the Mission Hills High school student has ran a personal best of 11.59sec in the 100m and 23.97sec in the 200m this season and should be a strong contender to make at least a semi final.

Dasor came to prominence last year on the back of some explosive performances locally and is now a student at Western Kentucky University in the U.S.A.

The former T.I Amadiyya alum’s best event is the 200m in which he has run a personal best of 21.07 this season,a time that needs improvement if he expects to beat a talented bunch of challengers headed by Japanese teenage sensation Yoshihide Kiryu.
