“GAA Should Apologise To Martha Bissah” – Former GAA Boss

    Mr. George Haldane Luttrodt Former President of the Ghana Athletics Association (GAA), insists has said the GAA should rather apologize to Bissah for the ill- treatment being meted out to her.

    He insists that Martha Bissah will not apologise to the local athletics controlling body because she said the “truth”.

    Bissah Ghana’s only Youth Olympic gold medalist accused the GAA of extortion while working on a scholarship for her to study in the USA. This came after her excellent performance at the 2014 Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing, China.


    She was later slapped with an indefinite suspension in 2016 by the GAA for indiscipline and bringing the name of the association into disrepute with false allegations.

    The GAA demanded an apology from the athlete, before the ban is lifted.

    He said, “Martha Bissah will not apologize for telling the truth. The girl said she told the truth.

    “What the GAA should have done was to get an external arbitrator to investigate the issue and not placing an indefinite suspension. An external committee should have been formed to hear the girl but that didn’t happen and GAA will never be forgiven for that.

    “This is illegal and the due process was not followed and we don’t suspend an athlete indefinitely,” he noted.
