Ghanaian top swimmer, Abeiku Jackson is optimistic of earning a slot to represent the West African country in the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Despite making a new Ghana time record in the last African Zone 2 Swimming and Open Water Championship, Abeiku missed out on the Olympics qualification mark.

He recorded 53.93 seconds to break the existing mark of 54.60 seconds in the Men’s 100 metres butterfly race.

Abeiku is quoted by the Ghana News Agency.

“I am preparing to battle the best for the limited Olympic slot next month. I know it would be very tough looking at the quality of swimmers expected but I am sure of scaling through.

“I have made some good times in recent times especially at the Africa Championship, and I would count on that to achieve my target next month”.

Abeiku Jackson will join a host of top-tier swimmers on the continent in Durban-South Africa to compete for a place in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
