Alumnus in the Olympics

Alumnus in Rio

ALUMNUS IN RIO! Alex Amankwah collected victory after victory while at West gaining him national attention and a track scholarship to Alabama where he continued to break national records. His success earned him a spot as the first Ghanaian to qualify for the Olympics in the 800 meters. Unfortunately, Amankwah was not able to match his season's best time of 1:50.33 and did not progress to the final rounds.
