Accra: The Ghana neighborhood where boxing is a way of life. Assistant Head Coach of the national amateur boxing team, the Black Bombers, Daniel Lartekwei Lartey, has called for support from corporate Ghana as the team prepares for the upcoming Africa Games scheduled for Rabat, Morocco from August 19-31.
The team has been on non-residential camping at the D.G Hathiramani Sports Hall since December 2018, in preparation towards a tournament which will also serve as a qualifier for the Olympic Games in Tokyo. But conditions under which the team has been training, he said, leaves much to be desired as boxers commute to and from their various homes to the stadium to train on daily basis.
Second Deputy Coach of the team, Vincent Akai Nettey, expressed belief in the boxers in camp, saying that when given the right preparation, they can qualify and win medals at the games.The shoot
