Take Your Academics Serious If You Want To Travel To The US – Doreen Adjei Safowaa to Ghanaian Athletes

Most athletes are always passionate and optimistic that doing sports in school is the ultimate goal in life. Meanwhile, they have forgotten that it was through the academics that brought them to where they are now.

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Ghana Athletics Association (GAA) has emphatically stated that sports and academics are twins and they move together. Someone can be very good in sports but he/she doesn’t know anything about academics it’s very dangerous and it can even ruin your God-given talents while in school.

Doreen Adjei has advised the upcoming Ghanaian athletes who don’t take their books seriously while in school that they should desist from that behavior if only they aspire to take their running career to the next level.

Doreen was the first Ghanaian Female Athlete to get a scholarship to study in the United States during Professor Francis Duodu’s era. She also holds the Ashanti Regional Inter-Collegiate Superzonal Games record in 100 metres and 200 metres.

She competed in the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland.  She competed in 200 metres in 25.27, place 5th in her heats but didn’t advance. Doreen Adjei Safowaa was also part of the 4 × 100 metres relay team unfortunately, they were disqualified. The quartet was Flings Owusu-Acheampong, Gemma Acheampong, Beatrice Gyaman, and Doreen Adjei Safowaa.

She is a member of the Great Ashanti Athletics Club which is headed by Mr. Paul Tuffour popularly known as Coach Koora.
