African Games: We sat in our coach’s pickup truck to Borteyman – Ghanaian badminton player laments

A member of Ghana’s badminton team, Leslie Addo, has shared the sad circumstances he and his teammates had to endure ahead of the 2023 African Games.

The team crashed out of Day 3 at the ongoing African Games, with none of the events seeing a Ghanaian progress past the quarterfinals.

According to Leslie Addo, the team had to be transported to the Borteyman Sports Complex, using their coach’s pickup van.

Due to the limited space in the car for the players, about eight players had to perch in the bucket of the truck.

“We had to sit in our coach’s vehicle on our way here and it was a pickup. Most of us had to sit in the bucket – about eight of us.

“We didn’t get any transport to the venue. We’re the host nation so how could that happen,” he told Joy Sports.

Additionally, team members expressed dissatisfaction with the late arrival of their playing equipment. Many of them were unable to test the equipment before the competition, adding to the challenges they faced during the African Games.
