Team Ghana performed wonderfully here although they couldn’t show any medal at their first Deaflympics appearance in seventeen (17) years, but the Ambassador said they should have it in their minds that they are heroes in their own way, urging Team Ghana to always approach every competition with a ‘can do’ spirit.
