23

Ghana’s Benjamin Azamati won the men’s 100m event at the 2022 Wanda Diamond League in Paris on Saturday evening. The former University of Ghana student, who finished fourth in the Oslo Diamond League meeting on Thursday, run a time of 10.25 seconds to beat all seven contenders at the Stade Charlety despite difficult conditions. His compatriot, Sean Safo-Antwi, however, finished sixth with a time of 10.45s.

It is certainly a double joy for Azamati, who has been signed by AISCS for the next two and half years. Despite stumbling at the very start of the race, Ghana’s 100m record holder managed to get over the line. The Diamond League meetings are part of preparations for the upcoming World Athletics Championship and Commonwealth Games.
