Why Martha Bissah Failed To Qualify For Tokyo 2020

    Mr. George Halden Lutterodt, former President of the Ghana Athletics Association (GAA) says, the indefinite suspension placed on Martha Bissah former Youth Olympic gold medalist, was the cause of her inability to qualify for this year’s Tokyo Olympic Games in Japan.

    The GAA suspended Bissah, who was 17 years then for making false allegations against the Association and the ban can only be lifted if the athlete substantiates her claims or apologize.

    In an interview with the GNA Sports, Mr. Lutterodt, who secured a four-year scholarship for Bissah to study in the United States in 2016 said, the GAA’s indefinite suspension could be part of the reasons Ghana’s only Youth Olympic 800m gold Olympic medalist missed out on the Olympic Games.

    He said, “The GAA’s suspension was also part of her inability to qualify for the Olympics this year.

    “Psychologically, it can affect your performance when you can’t compete at the international level because of a suspension and this could be why she could not qualify,” he added.
