The athletes arrived in Tokyo without any coordination with regards to kits they will use for their events and each has since been spotted whatever fits the purpose

A lot of Ghanaians have shown their disappointment following how athletes representing the nation at the 2020 Olympic Games ongoing in Tokyo, Japan continue to wear different kits to participate various disciplines.

It looks like all the 14 athletes went there with their own jerseys perhaps since Ghana Olympic Committee and government failed to have one kit sponsor for them unlike athletes from other competing countries.

It will interest you to know that sprinter Benjamin Azamati competed in a different kit when running in the Men’s 100 metres.

Also, Joseph Paul Amoah has been seen wearing two different shirts from different companies at the Olympics. The 200 metre runner was spotted to be donning a kit suspected to be provided by Errea for his Heat and another jersey different from what he wore initially whe he was fighting for a place in the semifinals.

Meanwhile, bronze medallist Samuel Takyi who has won Ghana’s only medal at the games and the first in 29 years, was also spotted donning a Nike jacket with his coach which have raised questions about coordination and uniformity among the athletes representing Ghana.

It is even believed that the 4×100 relay team that will be competing on Thursday morning may likely wear a different kit to what others have already wore to compete for a place in the quarterfinals.

Despite all these concerns raised by a section of Ghanaians watching the games back home on television and social media platforms, Ghana Olympic Committee is yet to issue a statement to explain why almost all the athletes continue to wear different jerseys from different companies.
