Olympian Benjamin Azamati, the Ghanaian record holder in the 100m dash is asking the general public to subscribe to his official YouTube channel. Azamati debuted in the Tokyo Olympic Games a few days ago in both 100m and 4×100m relay team for Ghana. In the 100m, he couldn’t secure a semifinal spot but place 4th in the heat. During the 4×100m, men’s relay heats the Ghana team managed to qualify to the final ahead of the high rate United States 4×100 relay team.

Now Benjamin Azamati has become the role model of most of the Ghanaian upcoming athletes. One major key to success is good preparations and in athletics the right training plan. Most elite athletes don’t make their training routine public. A lot of professional coaches also sell all kinds of training online.


But our own Azamati has created a YouTube channel in which he will publicly see his weekly training programmes. Most of these are not for free especially when it comes to sprinting events.

Benjamin Azamati wrote this on his official Twitter account “subscribe to my official YouTube Channel for video updates with regards to:

– My weekly training programmes and schedules

– My preparation towards world/international championships

Be inspired and Never Question Greatness!”


Azamati after the Tokyo Olympic Games said “I never competed in any such big event before but I had learnt a lot and will go home and work on them”. We need to enter into International Championships in Europe to get more experienced.” Azamati is eager to win an Olympic medal in Paris 2024.

Before the Tokyo Olympic Games Mr. Bawa Fuseini, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Ghana Athletics Association made the same comment “we need to invest in these athletes if we want them to win medals for Ghana”.

The two are all sighting at a common end, the more you compete in competitions the more experience you get.

Now Benjamin Azamati will be preparing for the World Athletics Championships 2022. The championships will be held in Oregon, Eugenia.
