John Osei Kofi clocks Ghana’s fastest 100m

John Osei-Kofi zoomed to the top of the 100m list (with no Ghanaian foreign-based athlete having run faster that his 10.53s); he also has a 21.22s 200m time from last month.

Elizabeth Azuure returned a time of 10.16.67 in the 3k to add to her 5K time from last month of 17.06.73.

Among the foreign-based, there were so many notable results:

Immediate assumption of the top ranking by Flings Owusu-Agyapong with her 11.44s time in her opening 100m (and a personal best 23.88s in the 200m).
Daniel Gyasi with a massive PB of 46.30s in the 400m
Emmanuel Dasor with a season best 20.85s  and a massive PB of 46.5s in the 400m
Solomon Afful with very fine runs of 10.44s and 21.14s, although both were windy.
A national record smashing 7532 points by Atsu Nyamadi in the decathlon
