Ghana has missed slots in the boxing category heading to the Paris 2024 Olympics.

The Road to Paris 2024, 2nd World Qualifying Tournament which was held at the Indoor Arena – Huamark Stadium Bangkok in Thailand did not favour Ghana as all seven boxers representing could not qualify.

In the Women’s Middleweight -75Kg (Rd 16) ORNELLA SATHOUD of Ghana lost 0-5 on unanimous point decision to Shierleidis Orozco of Columbia.

She thus, ends her dream of going to Paris.

According to Ornella, the past 3 weeks have been another amazing adventure in my boxing journey. Between representing Buffalo for the Golden Gloves and Ghana for the World Olympics Qualifiers in Thailand.

“I didn’t get the Well today, but all was a great experience. We win some and we learn. I thank all coaches for the support and guidance, my teammates my boxing family, my family and friends for the unconditional love and support. Until next time” she said on her social media, Facebook.
