As part of our ongoing coverage of Ghana Athletics, we have produced the latest rankings of performances by Ghanaian athletes both home and abroad. The present publication focuses on performances by female athletes.

The rankings relied on data from athletics tracking website tilastopaja, results from the Ghana Athletics Association’s organised competitions on 27th March and 5th May 2021 and Ghana’s Fastest Human on 20th March.

The rankings features highlights of major performances and not necessarily all performances that were recorded at the events. US based Josephine Anokye tops the rankings in the 100m, 200m and 400m events while home based Grace Obour, a 2019 African Games 400m bronze medallist, has also shown great form in the 200m and 400m.

We standby for any corrections or additions individuals or organisations may want to make:
