Hard work and discipline are the secret of their young team, according to Mr. John Kennedy Koranteng, secretary general of the Ghana Judu Association.

After the Judo team returned from Togo, where they won eleven gold and two bronze medals in a unique West African Tournament, he spoke with Yours Truly at the Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC) Secretariat on Wednesday. He said the judokas were really determined to perform and most of them won in record times without wasting time.

He asserted that the boys and girls are Ghana Judo’s future and should be encouraged.

He urged businesses to adopt some of them by giving them scholarships so they could learn while participating in sports.

These young men are actually incredibly talented. All they require is inspiration and support, and they will succeed, he said.

He also praised the coaches who made time for the team and give their all to ensure that the judokas acted appropriately at all times.

Personally, I was very impressed with their performance, and I believe the Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC), National Sports Authority (NSA), and the Judo Association must encourage them to continue competing and take the sport to the highest competitions, including the Olympic and Commonwealth Games, as well as African and World Championships.

The team is currently training for the Olympic Games qualification in Cote D’Ivoire, according to Mr. Koranteng, and he is confident they will perform well once more.

He expressed gratitude to Kwabena Asamoah for giving the Judo Team gear.
