Ghana’s Joseph Paul Amoah finished 4th for the Olympics 200m semi-finals. The Ghanaian sprinter qualified for the semi finals of the men’s 200m after finishing 3rd in heat 7 of the half lap event at the Tokyo Olympics.
Amoah finished 4th in the 200m semi-finals in 20.27s. He finished just behind the US’s E. Knighton (20.02s), Jamaica’s R. Dwyer (20.13s) and Nigeria’s D. Oduduru (20.16s).
He crossed the finish line in his Heat in 20.35s, behind USA’s Noah Lyles and eSwatini’s S. Masenjwa, who finished 1st and 2nd respectively. This achievement gave him entry into the 200m semi. At his debut Olympics, Amoah started Heat 7 off well in Lane 3, and came out of the bend in the lead.
Amoah took to Twitter to show his appreciation for the immense support.
Woow what a support base!!! Thank you guys, I truly appreciate it ❤️??
