Ghana is now the champions in Africa when it comes to 4x100m relay.
Yesterday, the quartet, that was made up of Benjamin Azamati Kafui, Joseph Amoah, Martin Owusu-Antwi and Sean Safo-Antwi, made Ghana proud by winning Gold in the 4x100m relay.
The golden boys were participating in the ongoing African Games in Morrocco.
Their win was the second time a Ghanaian won gold in the African Games.
The boys won the final ahead of Nigeria, South Africa, Gambia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Cameroon and Ivory Coast.
While to some, it may seem that the boys have achieved success overnight, it cannot be far from the truth.
