“I got a lot to fix”, Sean Safo-Antwi

Ghanaian Olympian sprinter, Sean Safo-Antwi says he has a lot of “things to fix” after finishing fourth in heat 10 of the men’s 100 metres race in the ongoing 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England.

Despite coming in fourth place, the 31-year-old had one of the top timings among the non-automatic qualifiers, which allowed him to advance to the semifinals.

In heat 10 of the men’s 100-meter dash, he finished fourth with a time of 10.33 seconds.

“I stumbled, came out the blocks, I hit the ground and I started chasing. I couldn’t quite pick up speed because when I stumbled, it didn’t pick up a good race. So hopefully there’s enough to qualify for the semi-final. We see what goes from there,” Safo-Antwi told Ghanaian reporters in Birmingham.

“I’m excited [to qualify for the semi-finals], but I got a lot to fix. I need to fix it, so I’ll come back and fix it for the semi-final.”

Safo-Antwi was part of the men’s 4x100m relay team that finished fifth at the World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Oregon, United States. The quartets set a new national record in the process.
