LOWER YOUR EXPECTATIONS FOR TEAM GAME-ABIGAIL KWARTENG

Ghana’s triple and long jumper at the 2022 commonwealth games Abigail Kwarteng hass urged supporters to lower their expectation of team Ghana at the event.

,the 25 year old will represent Ghana in the women’s high jump competition together with Rose Amonimaa Yeboah.

The 12-day multi-sport competition in the Midlands has gone without Ghana taking home a medal.

Kwarteng believes Ghanaians should not expect the team to return with medals when there is little of no investment for the games.

“You don’t expect from where you don’t invest. If everything was good and I was able to continue how my training was good. If I had enough time to rest and enough time to be in practice I could easily stand and tell you that I’m very confident that things are going to be great. However, I have to work 12 hours a day and spend just about 3 to 4 hours practicing,” she told Betty Yawson of GHOne TV.

“I’m going to go out there and do my best. My coach is really trying and that is why I say I can see what is going to happen. It is not even just with me but I think Ghanaians shouldn’t expect much from anybody you didn’t invest in, however, we are going to go out there and do whatever we could because we love the sport and that is what we are here for and give our 100 percent. And, the prayer is that our 100 percent is enough.”

The 25 year old Finished 2nd in the high jump (1.74m) to start the indoor season at the UAB Blazer Invitational, came in 1st in the high jump with a mark of 5-8.5 (1.74m) at the Samford Invitational, Finished in fourth place in the high jump with a season-best mark of 1.77m at the SEC Indoor Track and Field Championships, Competed in the high jump at the Texas Tech Shootout and tied for fourth with a jump of 1.71m.
