Medal Winning Black Bombers must utilize last chance to Paris 2024 in Bangkok

Ghana Boxing was great at the last Olympic Games in Tokyo 2020, where Samuel Takyi won bronze for Ghana and Africa, however all has not been smooth for the Black Bombers, the national Boxing team of Ghana to make it to Paris 2024.

The seven Bombers who grabbed medals at the 13th African Games have shown that they can perform when given the opportunity so they must be prepared well to have the mentality of winning. They must be exposed and they must feel the experience.

Golden Bombers

Golden Warrior Samuel Takyi, Golden Star Mohammed Aryeetey, Golden Boy Amadu Mohammed and Golden Jaguar Joseph Commey, Silver star Abu Kamoko, Theophilus Allotey, bronze bomber and Janet Acquah (Hitter), the only female bronze medal winner must be given the chance to travel to Thailand and qualify for Paris 2024, because we need it. The event is between May 23 and June 3, 2024.

After the first World Olympic Boxing Qualifying Event in Italy, there is the second and last chance in Thailand and Boxing is going to be a real tough competition at the 2024 Olympic Games.
