The stage is set for the official launch ofÂ the standard Chartered Bank Ghanaâ€™sÂ Fastest human (GFH) launch at the handballÂ court of the Accra stadium today.
According to Reks Brobby, founder ofÂ GFH, the event, designed for U-18 boys andÂ girls (students), seeks basically to unearthÂ athletes to feed the national athletics teamsÂ as done in football.
He mentioned that his outfit had partneredÂ the Ghana Education Service (GES),Â organizers of INTERCO, an athletics championshipÂ for High Schools, to pick the fiveÂ fastest boys and girls each from the 10Â regions in the country.
The selected athletes from the regionsÂ will race for supremacy in an elite competitionÂ scheduled for November 22 at the El-Â Wak Stadium to pick Ghanaâ€™s FastestÂ Human U-18.
â€œThe stage is set for Mondayâ€™s launch.Â Weâ€™re doing this to revive the days ofÂ INTERCO and to raise young talents to representÂ Ghana. Standard Chartered BankÂ bought into the vision, hence their massiveÂ support, and I must commend them for rallyingÂ behind this noble concept,â€ Mr BrobbyÂ said.
The program is put together by GFH,Â financed by Standard Chartered Bank in collaborationÂ with the Ministry of Youth andÂ Sports (MOYS), the National Sports AuthorityÂ (NSA), the GhanaÂ Athletics Association (GAA), the GhanaÂ Education Service (GES), the Ghana InvestmentÂ Promotions Center (GIPC), YetronÂ Services Limited, Pipas Gym, Bel-Aqua MineralÂ Water, Wrenco Printing, MukaaseÂ Kitchen, Chic Optique and the GhanaÂ Olympic Committee (GOC).
