On February 24, 2020, Ghana welcomed eleven (11) African Countries to one of the countries most historic cities, Cape Coast, for this year’s Africa Junior Cadet Championship.

The event which was scheduled for a duration of 5 days, saw some notable changes along the line with the University of Cape Coast which was supposed to be the initial venue being changed. The current is venue Cape Coast Sports Stadium which is more conducive, huge enough and serves a favourable temperature. Relatively, the number of days have also been trimmed from five (5) to four (4), expecting to end on Friday, 29th February 2020.

The President of the Ghana Fencing Association, Mr Mohammed Mahadi, speaking to the media, expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the Ministry of Youth and Sport (MOYS), National Sports Authority (NSA), Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC) and all participating countries.

“We are very much overwhelmed by the support of the NSA, the logistic support they have provided has really helped us’’ - this clearly indicates how determined they are to support this worthy course.

Howbeit, the Fencing Association have had numerous promises from the Ministry awaiting fulfilment.

Touching on the performance of the Ghanaian team in the ongoing competition, the Association President seems to be very proud of these young ones since this is their first major tournament and they have proven beyond all imaginable doubts that with time, they can match up with the competition’s giants such as Egypt who have dominated the medal table.
