Youth Olympic Gold medalist Martha Bissah has failed to make the final list for the All African Games in Congo despite being handed a second opportunity by the Ghana Athletics Association.

Bissah was part of a number of athletes handed a second chance in a special event organized by the GAA in an attempt to hand athletes who missed the qualifying mark marginally.

Despite her promising exploits in the past Martha has failed in the current athletics calendar to reach the required time of 2m 04s,instead her best time recorded this year has been 2m 08s.

At the special event which was held at El Wak Sports Stadium on August 21,2015 Martha’s performance declined even further running a time of 2m 11s which means that she was some way off the time required.

Ghana have been handed 25 slots for the various athletics disciplines but have currently managed to fill only 20 of those slots.
