Spokesperson for the Ghana Olympics Committee (GOC), Mr. Charles Osei Asibey, has disclosed that the Ghanaian team competing in this year’s Commonwealth Games, are ready to travel to Australia.
Speaking to Rainbow Sports this morning, Mr. Charles Osei Asibey said all is set for “Team Ghana” to fly to Australia, adding that, they will leave the country on the 23 of this month.
He however noted that this year, all the participants will travel together and not in bits as they used to.
Again, all participants who are currently living abroad will join the team in Australia.
Meanwhile, as per a directive by the International Games Committee (IGC), which orders that all participants of the various disciplines go thorough medical examination, the committee has asked all athletes to be examined.
Explaining further, the spokesperson for GOC indicated that, following previous incidence of failing to examine athletes which sometimes prevented them from competing, the committee has decided to conduct medical examination for all participants.
He was quick to add that, a total number of (71) participants would be travelling to Australia and that would determine the total number of officials we will go with.
