2016 Olympic Qualifier; Ghana set to miss out on Africa Taekwando Qualifier in Morocco

Ghanian Taekwondo athletes

The Ghana Taekwondo Association (GTA) will need at least $27,000 to participate in the 2016 Africa Olympic Games qualifiers in Morocco early next month and may miss the competition if the Association fails to raise the required funds.

Ghana is scheduled to send four athletes to battle for slots from the continent for the biggest sports festival in Brasil later in the year, but it looks very impossible due to the financial challenges.

As at the close of work last Thursday, the GTA was yet to secure money for air tickets, accommodation and cost of living in Morroco for the two-day competition.

Ghana losing risk losing the chance to participate in the qualifiers and subsequently the Olympic Games if the Association is unable to raise funds to support the four athletes earmarked for the competition.
