What we have is a boat load of early outdoor performances, including the long awaited responses from Ghana-based athletes to an entire indoor season from their foreign-based compatriots.

Very notable of the Ghana-based performances are Richard Seklorwu (long jump), Osei Kofi (100m & 200m), Sakat Lariba (1500m) and Elizabeth Azuure (3000m).

This week, the foreign-based athletes opened their outdoor campaigns and we also saw notable performances from John Ampomah (javelin), Ama Larbi (400m hurdles), Gemma Acheampong & Suzie Acolatse (100m), Agnes Abu
(800m), Lydia Ataa Afia Mato (5000m), Sampson Azumah Laari (800m & 1500m), and Solomon Afful (100m & 200m).

There was also a useful PB from Stephanie Aidoo in the 200m and a 23.85s outdoor 200m opener from Janet Amponsah.

Note: The marks in red are the indoor marks that remain athlete bests.
