Athleticshour “who are those athletes in the picture. I see very familiar faces?”

Coach Sule “oh yes, in the picture is Lariba Sakat, Elizabeth Azure, Mumuni Asibi, Pandam Chima, Mbaot Marry, Ayab Atini, Alale Eliasu, Ataila Awine Samuel, Sherifa. Even some of my athletes are now footballers and some are in the United States. There are good long-distance runners here if the country can concentrate.”

Athleticshour “Am really touched with this. So you train both athletes (athletics and footballers) at the same time?”

Coach Sule “oh yes, as I said earlier some of my athletes are now footballers.”

Athleticshour “so are now more into football than athletics.”

Coach Sule “because of what happened but people are putting pressure on me not to stop.”

Athleticshour “so were you an athlete or you learnt it as a profession.”

Coach Sule “oh yes, I was an athlete but could not have the opportunity to participate or to travel but have sports at heart”.

Athleticshour “so are you still training the athletes or not.”

Coach Sule’s Athletes

Coach Sule “hmmm, it’s not like the way I used to do. But I have a few ones but we don’t train regularly. Although I have taken some of my athletes back.”

Athleticshour “how many races have you sent your athletes to?’’

Coach Sule “I have never sent my athletes to any place, I go to Bolgatanga with them from there the region takes them. I asked them always to let me fellow them and learn more since most of the athletes come from my place.”

Athleticshour “what was their response?’

Coach Sule “hmmmmm……..”

Athleticshour “but have you ever traveled with your athletes on your own to any race before?”

Coach Sule “no! just I faired myself in 2016 for the Milo Marathon to support my girls.”

Athleticshour “how was it, did they win?”

Coach Sule “yes, Elizabeth was 1st, Lariba was 2nd, Asibi was 5th, Marry was 6th and Atini was 8th. They were given cash and it’s with Mr. Afelibiek.”

Athleticshour “but does Mr. Afelibiek knows you?”

Coach Sule “yes, but I think he opened accounts for some of them. He really helps them. Just that I want to learn more and don’t give me the opportunity. He knows me, he comes to me for the athletes.”

Athleticshour “who doesn’t give you the opportunity?”

Coach Sule “……..”

Athleticshour “so he helps you right?’’

Coach Sule “no. the motorbike I use to train long-distance runners even spoiled.”

Athleticshour “how does your NSA help you?”

Coach Sule “nobody helps me.”

Athleticshour “but you said Mr. Afelibiek helps you?’’

Coach Sule “no I didn’t say so, I said he helps the athletes, not me. When Lariba won so many competitions I thought he could help me with a motorbike to continue training athletes, he didn’t. I have the potential to identify good athletes, you can check on the performance Upper East athletes both basic and second circle and find out where are the best athletes are coming from.”

Athleticshour “can you tell me where they are now. State this one again. You have only traveled to Milo Marathon just once, which year was that?”

Coach Sule “Lariba now at the University of Education, Winneba, Elizabeth now Ghana Armed Forces, Hawa University of Education, Winneba, Asibi big boss, Chima big boss, Marry big boss, Samuel University of Cape Coast, Eliasu.

Athleticshour “what is the big boss?’’

Coach Sule “Bolgatanga Senior High School”

Athleticshour “thank you for your time.”
