President of the Ghana Olympics Committee, Ben Nunoo Mensah, says his outfit will need $300,000 in order to fully prepare for the Olympic Games to be hosted in Tokyo, Japan.
The Tokyo Olympics will be held from July 23 to August 8 of this year.
“I have always said that athletes are owned by the national federation and most of the preparation by the athletes have been at the national level. That is why athletes like Azamati and the boxers are doing so well. Most of the preparation has been done by these bodies, and all that we did for them was to give them scholarships and funding for international tournaments.
Now that the athletes have been handed to the GOC, what we are doing is that we are preparing for them to have training camps a month before the tournament starts which should be enough to help them sharpen their skills and help them peak just before the Olympic Games starts. He said.
He added that, the GOC will need about $300,000 to be fully prepared for the trip to Tokyo.
