After spending about four weeks in their pre Games camp in South Ayrshire, Ghana’s Commonwealth Games Team finally landed at the Commonwealth Games Village in Glasgow on Monday.
The country is banking on good preparation and consistent performances by many of the athletes in their various disciplines in recent years to inspire Team Ghana to possibly a best ever performance in the history of the multi-sports games.
Team Ghana are expected to compete in disciplines as athletics, boxing, fencing, hockey, judo, table tennis, swimming, cycling, weightlifting among others.
The Ghanaian contingent had earlier on Sunday bid an emotional farewell to the city of Ayrshire in a ceremony at Belmont Academy.
Ghana’s pre Games has been described by athletes and officials as one of the best by a Ghanaian contingent to a major competition in recent memory.
The Ghana Olympic Committee undertook a similar exercise when the country’s team to the 2012 Olympic Game spent three weeks in Plymouth prior to the opening of the competition.
Led by the Chef de Mission, Chris Essilfie, the Ghana team expressed their appreciation to their host who helped facilitate their accommodation, transportation, training facilities and feedings needs during their stay.
To show their gratitude, the Ghanaian delegation handed out pieces of Kente cloth and ‘fugu’ to their host made up of South Ayrshire Council members, drivers, security men, Policemen, sports clubs and coaches, among others.
