No joy for Ghana in hockey nor swimming

There was no joy for Ghana in the swimming pool as Zaira Forson came last in the Women’s 200m Butterfly heats, while teammate Nubia Adjei finished in seventh position in the Women’s 50m Backstroke.

It was double agony for Ghana as Abeiku Jackson finished last in the Men’s 50m Freestyle and failed to progress in the competition.

Misery for hockey

In hockey, the national women’s team suffered their fourth consecutive loss after they were thrashed 8-1 by Canada in a Pool B match at the University of Birmingham Hockey Centre on Tuesday.

The Ghanaian ladies had previously lost 0-5 to India, 0-12 to England and 0-4 to Wales.

On Wednesday morning the male team will attempt to redeem themselves as they take on Wales in a Pool B match.

Led by Elikem Akaba, the Ghanaians were given a baptism of fire after losing 0-11 to India in the opening game last Sunday but lifted their game and held Canada to a 1-1 draw as they conceded a late equaliser barely a minute to end the game last Monday.
