Meet Omelia Sathoud – The Lady With PhD In Chemistry Who Will Represent Ghana At The Boxing Olympic Games

Omelia Sathoud is part of the contingent hoping to qualify to the Boxing Olympic Games in Tokyo this June.

The US-based high school teacher who holds a PhD in Chemistry is hopeful to produce top-notch results for Ghana at the coveted Olympic Games despite the limited resources.

Omelia told Sports Obama in an interview, she grew up in Ghana and Congo but spent most of her active years in America as a teacher until June 2014 when she decided to start a boxing career.

Torn between which country to represent since she is both from Ghana and Congo, she had to settle with the former though she lives in the United States.

Omelia will be the first female boxer to qualify for the Olympics if Ghana makes it to Tokyo and she admits it is a heavy task.

The boxing road to Tokyo 2020 kicks off in Dakar, Senegal where the first of the five boxing qualifying events for the Olympic Games will be held from February 20 to 29.
