Joseph Amoah misses out 200m semis at World Athletics Championships  – Ghanaian national record holder in the 200m, Joseph Paul Amoah has opened up on his performance in the 200m race at the 2022 World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Oregon, United States.

Amoah placed 5th in his heat making it impossible for the sprinter to progress to the semis in the 200m event.

He recorded a time of 20.04 which is his best performance this year but wasn’t enough to qualify him to the next stage of the event.

Speaking to the media after the race, he said the race was his best time this season after recovering from injury. read more

“This is the fastest I’ve run in 200m all season. I feel like 1m getting back to my last year’s shape at the right time”, he told Joy Sport.

He added that, unlike the 100m dash, it takes more endurance to finish the 200m race and that contributed to him finishing fifth in the heat.

“I think the 200m is not as short as the hundred and you need endurance and stuff like that to be able to cross the line. Looking at the injuries that I’ve faced during the season, there are some training workouts that I wasn’t able to do or finish so it’s like the endurance part is not really there but you still want to push to see how best we can come out with results”, Joe Amoah said.

“Are we bringing one to Ghana…… Available events Alex Amankwaa – 800m Deborah Acquah – Long Jump Sean Safo-Antwi, Emmanuel Yeboah, Joseph Manu, Joseph Paul Amoah, Benjamin Azamati – 4*100m None of our athletes have qualified to the semis in any of the events so far..”
