Ghana’s Duncan Nuakoh Agyemang exited the men’s 400m in the ongoing CAA African Seniors Championships in Mauritius after placing 4th with 48. 50s heat 2.
The US-based athlete thus failed to clinch one of the three automatic qualifying places for the semi-finals of the one lap event.
The heat was won by Tunisia’s Mohammed Farres in a time of 46.52, followed by Zambia’s Kennedy Luchembe with 45.76 while Yobsan Biru Wegi of Ethiopia took third place with 47.55s.
Duncan was selected for the championships on the back of some impressive performances which saw him record a lifetime best 45.80s on 28th May. This was his first national call up after his recent stellar run of performances.
Ghana is being represented by four athletes at the African showpiece event. It is now left with high jumper Rose Amoanimaa, sprinter Joseph Paul Amoah (200m), and Sean Safo-Antwi (100m).
