Jamaica Sprint legend Asafa Powell has tipped young Ghanaian runner, Benjamin Azamati to win medals at the World stage.
He has backed the fast rising Ghanaian star sprinter to win medals at the World Athletic Championships.
Azamati broke Leonard Myles-Mills’ 100m record of 9.98 seconds, which had stood for 22 years and has since been tipped by many to reach greatness.
“I don’t know Azamati personally, but I know of him. He’s very talented and you can see that for yourself,” Powell said.
“I’m sure he was running when he was in Ghana, but he wasn’t getting to that level and then he left to the USA. All of a sudden, he’s running fast.”
“So you can imagine [what will happen] if you had the same coaching and attitude here in Ghana, you would be making lots of stars.
“Once you’re running sub 10, you are ready to win a medal.”
