Janet Mensah rockets past Grace Obour to win women’s 200m final at National Invitational

Janet Mensah left it to the final 10 meters to steal the show as she overtook Grace Obour to win the women’s 200m final race at the LOC Invitational Championship at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium on Friday morning.

Mensah recorded a time of 24.229 seconds to win over Obour who was clearly outgased at the last moments of the race.

Ethel Amissah placed third after clocking 25.266 seconds.

Meanwhile, Edwin Gadayi has recorded the best national record (locally) in the men’s 200m in 2022.

The Ashanti region-based athlete made a time of 20.848 seconds to set the best time by any local athlete this year.

Gadayi stormed past James Dadzie who ambitiously led the race from the shot of the gun but finished behind with a time of 21.064 seconds.

David Awuah (21.532), Frank Mensah (21.768), Shaibu Marizuk (22.076), and Richmond Oppong (22.138) finished in that order.
