Ahead of the IAAF World Championships, former Ghana sprinter Dr. Christian Nsiah has said the nation’s 4x100m relay teams have realistic chances of making the final of their respective events, adding that sprinter Joseph Paul Amoah is “not close to his peak yet.”
Joe is coming off a breakthrough season which saw him take down the national 200m record with 20.08s(NR) and a PB 10.01s in the 100m.
Read the thoughts of Dr. Christian Nsiah who was the coach of the national team at the recent African Games in Morocco.
“I believe the two relay teams have realistic prospects to get into the finals of the 4x100m. If they are are able to get through to the finals, it’s anybody’s race. Joe Paul has one of the best too end speeds I have ever seeen. If he works out the first half of his race and be aggressive and explosive in the first half of he 100m. He will go under 10 secs.”
“Again Joe Paul is not close to his peak yet and he already owns the 200m record for the nation. If you look at his races, his top end speed is one of the best in the world. His personal coach and the GHANA national coaches just need to work on his first half and we will have a potential world medalist on our hands.”
