The Ghana Taekwondo Federation in a way of preparing their athletes for World ranking points will be meeting with the first 4 in the national athlete ranking based on the last championship (9th Korean Cup).
The meeting, which is also to encourage the athletes to look for sponsorship, will start at 11am, on Thursday, January 25 2018 at the GOC Conference room.
Athletes invited include both male and female Para taekwondo practitioners as well.
Other practitioners who are not ranked but have ever been national players are also invited.
Adnan Odartey Lamptey who speaks for the GTF explains to Herosportsgh.com, the importance of the upcoming championship in Morocco is to the athletes.
“We have invited the first four ranked athletes from the last championships and the objective is to discuss with them how best each of them can try to raise sponsorship for themselves. So that they can attend a very important championships in March. Because of the point system, the championship in Morocco involves 2; The African Senior Taekwondo championships and the WT President’s Cup and both championships will give them some points, for their ranking. And we felt that, it will be like killing 2 birds with 2 stone. Looking at the whole year, that championship alone seems to be the one that will cost less and offer more points.”
Other important issues concerning the well-being of Practitioners will also be discussed.
