Ghanaian sensational long-distance athlete Lariba Sakat Juliana has won the maiden edition of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) Cross Country Championship 2022.

Lariba was at 6km point and she was moving alone

The race started at exactly 7:50 am and the race was very competitive. The surprise name in the starting lists was the 2019 African Games Bronze Medallist Grace Obour who was in battle with the best when it comes to distance events in Ghana.
