“The Ghana Armed Forces Championship organisers have done very well for putting up a well-class event in Ghana during the coronavirus pandemic which has caused great damage to our sports in general. I want this championship to be organised each year to help the athletes and prepare them for major international competitions,” said Coach Koora.

According to him if the Ghana Armed Forces are able to maintain their team, they can excel and most of them can represent Ghana in the upcoming African Games 2023.

He also took us back during their olden days, he said that there were a lot of competitions that were being organised and they do participate in them. But this time is different, there are very few competitions. There were events like junior championships, senior championships, and invitational games which helps the athletes to prepare themselves very well ahead of the major competitions.

Coach Koora also disclosed to Athleticshour, his new project and collaboration with Coach Kelly Ricketts, a UK Athletics Performance Coach, and a Jamaican International Athletics Coach as well.
