Sports Equity Lab will organise a speed clinic on Wednesday, April 26 for about 50 athletes at the University of Ghana athletics oval.
The event, which is part of the build-up to the 2023 African Games to be staged in Ghana in September where 36 nations will showcase Africa’s top sporting talent, an international team of coaches led by Loren Seagrave, one of the most sought-after speed coaches in the world, has been invited to help the Ghanaian student-athletes and their coaches improve on their performances.
“There is no better time to run a world-class Max Velocity Speed Summit in Ghana,” Sports Equity Lab says.
In attendance will be celebrated Jamaican sprinter, Asafa Powell, who set the 100 metres world record twice, between June 2005 and May 2008 with times of 9.77 and 9.74 seconds, and other special guests.
Expressing her excitement about the upcoming event, Professor Yetsa Tuakli-Wosornu, founder of Sports Equity Lab, said:
“We’re so excited to put our research into action next week.
“We know how important science is to sports performance, and research shows that inclusive sports environments are more successful.
“By integrating cutting-edge techniques and bringing athletes from different sports, backgrounds, and abilities together, young Ghanaian athletes will have a unique experience to hone their skills.
“It’s great to have legendary athletes like Powell share the vision,” he said.
In addition to the speed clinic, there will also be a Sports Equity Talk titled “The Neurobiomechanics of Maximum Velocity Sprinting” at the Cedi Conference Centre at the University of Ghana on Thursday 27th April at 4 pm.
The team will also participate in Ghana’s Fastest Human Track and Field competition in Tamale on Saturday 29th April.

“On was created with a simple goal in mind — to make the best products possible for athletes around the world and nourish their talents while doing it. By working closely with athletes to test and develop our products, we help them get one (1) step closer to achieving their dreams.”
