Ghana's Paralympic team have sealed a qualification berth for next year's 2012 Paralympic Games after an excellent performance in this year's Africa Paracyling Championship in Kanda Highway, Accra.
The Championship, which was held from 10th to 11th December, 2011, attracted athletes from Burkina Faso, South Africa and Albania as they all battled for honours in the male and female tandem (blind) race, Hand cycling and Cycling C-Class.
The host country secured precious points in the C-2 Class with Alem Mumuni covering a total distance of 51.2km in the road race and 12.8km in the time trial whilst maintaining the Africa Number One spot for the 3rd consecutive time.
Ghana's Ernest Ayisi was crowned the continent number 2 and Abubakari Zakari as Africa Number 3.
South Africa's Francois Bezuidenhoud was Africa's number one in the male blind cycling after riding a total distance of 76.8km in the road race and 25.6m in the time trial followed closely by Ghana's Peter Dery Davuro and Frederick Assor in second and third respectively.
However, the International Cycling Union (UCI) has more programs to clear before the Paralympic Games and Ghana needs to be represented in those programmes to augment their slots for next year's London 2012 Paralympic Games.
