Ghana could set a six-month camp outside the shores of the country for athletes billed to represent the country for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Benson T. Baba, President of the Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC) told the media on Thursday that his outfit plans to fashion out a long camping for athletes for the quadrennial event in their quest to win laurels for the nation.

He said it was crucial for the private sector to partner government to raise financial support to propel the Ghana contingent to prepare adequately for the Olympic Games.

“It is very important for the private sector to partner government financially so that the team can camp for about six months so we can comfortably be sure of laurels for Ghana.”

The President said the GOC was happy to partner the British High Commission to make all the necessary arrangements for the Ghana contingent for the one month biggest global sports gathering, the 2012 London Olympics.

“We are very happy to partner the British High Commission to deliver to Ghanaians the best ever preparation for the Games. We hope to create enough awareness and ginger Ghanaians for the Games.”

Baba said Ghana has lost time in the wake of the one year ban imposed on her by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and said, ‘we have put in place plans to ensure that we don’t lose out because of that.’
