Commonwealth Games: ‘I am ready to shoulder the expectations of Ghanaians’ – Benjamin Azamati


National 100m record holder, Benjamin Azamati, claims he is willing to represent Ghana at the current Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

The Olympic sprinter believes after years of training, it is finally time for Ghana to take home a medal in the sprint events.

Azamati finished Heat 7 in a timing of 10.19 seconds, beating Welshman Jeremiah Azu, and earning one of the two automatic berths in the semi-finals.

“It is not going to be easy for anybody to win a medal just like any other competition in the world, but I am ready to shoulder the expectations of Ghanaians,” he told Graphic Sports.


“I believe it is time to make our years of hard work pay and I can’t wait to achieve that.”

“I have been working hard all these years to become a champion but unfortunately I’m yet to achieve a personal record.

“The experience has been very good for my career and I’m ready to put all that I’ve learned together and deliver a medal for Ghanaians.”
