Top Japanese track athlete Dae Tamasue has arrived in Ghana to hold series of
seminars and demonstrations on track athletics for Ghanaian athletes and
potential talents from second cycle schools.

Tamasue, who would be
in the country for three days before leaving to other Africa Countries for
similar demonstrations, was met on arrival at the Airport by the Deputy
Director of the National Sports Authority (NSA), Mr Saka Acquaye.

This is the Asian
sprinter and hurdler first visit to Africa and he is expected to meet the Ghana
Olympic Committee President, Ben Nuuno Mensah and the Minister of Youth and
Sports Mr Isaac Asiamah.

Tamasue, the first
Japanese sprinter to win a medal in a track event at a World Competition and
also the Japanese record holder in the Men’s 400-meter hurdle, said on arrival
that he chose Ghana as the first destination because of the cordial relations
between Ghana and Japan.

The Japanese top track
athlete said he hopes to pass on his experiences and benefits of sports to
others through associate organisations.

The 39-year-old
athlete was in action at the Sydney World Junior Championships in 1996 and
placed fourth in the 400m hurdles and also led the Japanese relay team to win
Bronze at the Edmonton Games in 2001.

He would be
interacting with students from the Accra Academy Senior High School and St
Mary’s Senior High School at the Accra sports stadium on Friday and a lecture
at the Media Centre of the Accra Sports Stadium.

His visit also
coincides with the 60th anniversary of the international relations between
Ghana and Japan.

The event is in
collaboration with the NSA, the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the Ghana
Education Service and hosted by the Japan Embassy of Ghana.
