Commonwealth Games sensation, Hor Halutie, says her dream is to emulate her compatriots who have hit the biggest stage of the sport in the not-too-distant future.
The 19-year-old produced a remarkable run to the final of the ladies 100m in Gold Coast, Australia before finishing in 8th place, a race that was won by Michelle Lee-Ahye of Trinidad and Tobago.
The former student of T.I. Ahmadiya said she is relishing the opportunity to get some level of support to improve her performance in the coming years.
“I was really determined in coming over to make an impact. You know this is my first international competition. I am proud to have made it this far but I know I would need some support going forward.
“I would be grateful if I could only get an opportunity abroad like some of my colleagues who are combining their athletics with school and have seen their times improve. I want to contribute to the growth of athletics in Ghana and I thank the authorities for this opportunity.”
