Tokyo 2020: Joseph Paul Amoah’s 200m Olympic dream over after finishing 4th in semi

Ghanaian sprinter, Joseph Paul Amoah has missed out on a place in the finals of the men’s 200m at the Tokyo Olympics.

The 24-year-old smashed the national record again, finishing with a  Season’s Best time of 20.27s, placing 4th in his semi-finals heat.

He crossed the line behind USA’s Erriyon Knighton, Rasheed Dwyer of Jamaica, and fellow African, Divine Oduduru from Nigeria.

Amoah struggled to cope with the pace of the leading pack and came out of the bend slightly behind everyone else but had a blistering finish to set another national record.
