Day nine happens to be the final day for athletics and the host university UEW 7 gold medals to put pressure on UCC for the overall winners to be announced tomorrow though UCC are still in a good position to retain their trophy won when they hosted it the last time in Cape Coast considering the events left for the final day and the medals likely to be won by both UEW and UCC.

There will be soccer for both men and women to be decided and UCC men are the hot favorites to run away with that gold medal as they clash with the whipping boys in the competition and their UEW men’s counterparts also come face to face with the surprise team, UDS who wants to beat UEW at all cost to pick up the silver medal.

In the women soccer, UEW women also come face to face with the whipping girls in that competition, UG and they must beat them at all cost to pick gold and anything short of that will see UCC running away with the women’s gold medal too. UEW women thus have their own destinies in their hands tomorrow because they must just beat UG and the gold medal is theirs.

Another gold medal to be won by either UCC or UEW is in the area of women volleyball where they square it with each other tomorrow a win for either side gives them gold.
There will be basketball men’s final game between UG and UPSA and a win gives either of them gold. UCC already picked the gold in the women’s division and KNUST and UEW took home silver and bronze respectively.

There will also be volleyball men tomorrow and UEW seems to have the edge there for the gold.
Per the permutations above and with UCC already having 23 gold medals as against 19 for UEW, its very clear UCC are retaining their title once again as the overall champions in the 24th GUSA games. The host and win tagged trumpeting by the host supporters, participants and lecturers is now turning into “host and placing second” because there is no way they are going to win more than four gold medals tomorrow to ditch UCC for that trophy and so, we at www.ghanabliss.com are calling it for UCC per the current standings on the medal table and the permutations above.
