FCEAB812 C4EE 4F5B 8D58 DFC67551C716 531x650 - We can’t win a medal at the Olympic Games if; Black Bombers Coach Ofori Asare raises concern

Three Amateur Boxers including Captain, Suleman Tetteh a flyweight and 2012 Olympian, featherweight Samuel Takyi, and Shakul Samir a heavyweight have all qualified to represent Ghana at the Olympic Games.

With less than 3 months to the Multi-Sports event, the team is still on a non-residential camping regimen at the D.G. Hathiramani Hall in the Accra Stadium where they engage in a daily drill of various aspects of gym work with certain days reserved for roadwork and conditioning. A situation that Black Bombers Coach, Ofori Asare says won’t help them achieve their target of winning Ghana’s first medal in 51 years at the Olympics.

“As we are coming here to train, some of them, they walk here. They don’t get any allowances being it transport or training allowances”

“So at least if we go camping on time, the boxers won’t have to stress about walking from a long distance to train”

”They will eat well; they will have a nutritionist guiding their diet, which is very important. Apart from that, we will have a physiotherapist to take care of them”

“All these are very important but if we delay in going to camp, it will be difficult for us to achieve our target of winning a medal for Ghana. It’s been a long time since we won a medal”

“We have the men to do it, we just need more support to prepare us well.” Ofori Asare told Starr Sports.

Below is a video report of their training
