Joseph Paul Amoah wins bronze in men’s 200m event – Citi Sports Online

Ghanaian Sprinter, Joseph Paul Amoah has won bronze in the men’s 200meter final at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

The 25-year old finished the race with a time of 20.49s to secure 3rd position.

This is Ghana’s first medal in the track and field events after Benjamin Azamati missed out on a medal in the 100m final, a few days ago, while the men’s 4×100 meter relay team was disqualified from the final earlier on Saturday, August 6, 2022 for failing to inform officials about a change of athlete one hour to their semi-final race.

Amoah also becomes the first African to win a medal in the 200m event since 2006 and the first Ghanaian to win a medal in 200m since George Daniels in 1974.
