Samuel Takyi Has Won His First Olympic Quarter Final To Guarantee A Medal At Tokyo 2020
Ever since the Olympics 2020 started, there have been many attempt made by majority of the Ghanaian participants to qualify to the next stage. It has been a difficult task so far leading to the elimination of some due to unsatisfactory performance.
A participant who represented Ghana in the men swimming, Abeiku Jackson was late with a few seconds hence eliminated. Recently, female high triple jump athlete, Nadia Eke was also unable to qualify after all three jumps were ruled unsuccessful. Yesterday, 31st July, 2021, Benjamin Azamati Kweku’s performance in the 4 by 100m race unfortunately did not go well.
Before these people missed their chance to the next stage, there was Shakur Samed who also lost in the light weight boxing. Unilez, a swimmer also became 8th, Sulemanu Tetteh lost 5-0 to Cuba’s Yosbany Vietia in the round of 16 of the men’s flyweight.
As the adage goes “as there is destruction somewhere, another place is also getting better”.

Finally, Ghana has been able to have a good news from Samuel Takyi, a boxer. He knocked out a colombian fighter David Ceiber and this happens to be a first Olympic medal loading for a Ghanaian althlete in 29 years.
One can also say he has automatically gotten a bronze medal at this stage. What is left of him is how he can be able to grab the gold or silver medal as well.
Ghanaians are proud of you and go harder to win the ultimate.
