The University Of Ghana (UG) 4×100m men’s relay team has run another impressive time at the just-ended 10th All African Universities Games in Nairobi, Kenya.

This team is very promising and marketable as they are all current students.

When they get the appropriate resources and facilities for training they will qualify for any of the international competitions that are being held worldwide. The most fascinating aspect is that they run this time at an altitude of about 1745+ and it’s their first time being in such a place. UG 4×100m relay team set new PB of 39.38s at FASU Games.

If this team were to be flown to the 22nd CAA African Senior Athletics Championships in Mauritius their time would have qualified them for the final in the 4×100m men’s relay. Follow live results here
