Author: Micheal Obeng

The National Paralympic Committee has appointed four experienced coaches to lead the country’s para athletics team as preparations begin for the Paris 2024 Paralympics. Patrick Yaw Obeng, Ibrahim Suleiman, Ernest Brako Ofei, and Emmanuel Appiah Kubi have been tasked with securing more medals on the international stage.

Coaches Ibrahim Suleiman, Ernest Brako, and Patrick Yaw Obeng will focus on track events, while Emmanuel Appiah Kubi will concentrate on field disciplines. According to the President of NPC Ghana, Mr. Samson Deen, the four coaches were selected following a joint meeting with the Ghana Para Athletics Association and the Ghana Blind Sports Association.

Ghana made its Paralympic Games debut at the 2004 Summer Paralympics in Athens, with three representatives competing in two sports. Despite participating in several Paralympic Games since then, no Ghanaian has yet won a medal. The team will begin preparation for para athletics and para powerlifting at a pre-games training camp in Boucle Nord de Seine.

The appointment of these experienced coaches marks a significant step forward in Ghana’s preparations for the Paris 2024 Paralympics, and the country hopes to make a breakthrough in the medal standings.”
