Ghana’s Olympics flagbearer and athlete, Nadia Eke has shared a video of herself with 4 other athletes from Ghana dancing in the streets of the Olympic Games Village in Tokyo, Japan.
The other athletes, Joseph Manu, Joseph Amoah, Benjamin Azamati and Ansah Sarfo were busily doing a well-choreographed dance on a zebra crossing to the admiration of passersby.
Eke shared in the caption accompanying the video that, "Ghana continues to light up the game village with positive vibes only!"
“Although athletes may be on full lockdown at the 2020 Olympics, Team Ghana continues to light up the game village with positive vibes only! … Love my teammates for always dancing with me…”
Due to the adherence to strict COVID-19 protocols to curb the spread of the virus, the Games Village is under strict lockdown throughout the course of the games. Athletes are also tested regularly to identify any positive case immediately.
The Ghanaian athletes are clearly having fun at the summer Olympics and at their training sessions as they prepare to compete this week.
Watch the dance below:
Team Ghana will be seen in preliminary action from Monday, July 26 to Thursday, August 5, 2021.
