Ghana’s top sprinter Joseph Amoah will be heading to the Aliann Pompey Invitational meet, set for July 6 at the National Track and Field Centre at Leonora, WCD.
Amoah is having an outstanding 2019 season. He recorded a season’s best time of 10.01s in the 100 metres event in Texas on June fifth — when he also produced another season’s best of 20.08s in the 200 metres event.
Guyana’s national record in the men’s 100 metres event is 10.12s (Adam Harris) and in the 200 metres event, it is 20.14s (James Gilkes).
With just about one week before the Aliann Pompey Invitational meet is staged, Guyanese stars in these respective events would best serve their own interests by using that time to get themselves in better form to face the Ghanaian superstar.
The 100m clash should make for an interesting event, with Emmanuel Archibald and Winston George recently running 10.26s and 10.36s respectively at the National Senior Championships on June 29.
