Ghana's Qualification

Sports journalist Fentuo Tahiru, who is with the team in the Bahamas, posted on his X account. In his post, Fentuo expressed his excitement about Ghana's qualification for the Olympics, which he believed was never doubted. He was very excited that team Ghana beat team Nigeria as this victory against “our neighbours was revenge” after they took the gold medal in the just-ended All Africa Games 2024.

"Ghana, Nigeria and Liberia celebrating together after they ALL made the Olympics in the men’s 4x100m relays. Nigeria’s women even joined in. And guess who initiated the “ole” celebration #WorldRelays2024," he posted.
"We smoked them!" he added hinting at the victory team Ghana had over team Nigeria

I’ll wait for the interview you called for shortly after the celebration.
