GHANAIANS IN Great Britain are still finding it difficult to come to terms with Heptathlete Margret Simpsonâ€™s withdrawal from the Olympic Games.
Simpson was seen by Ghanaians in the United Kingdom (UK) as a medal hopeful for Ghana at the games.
But the Heptathlon super star surprisingly pulled out of the games early Friday morning when she was supposed to take part in the 200 meters dash.
With the exception of Simpson, all the other contestants in the race showed up, with the eventual winner being Karollyna Tymsca of Poland.
Initially, Ghanaians in London who did not know what resulted in her shocking pull out descended heavily on the poor athlete.
Most of the Ghanaians that spoke to DAILY GUIDE lambasted Simpson for being unpatriotic, hence her decision to pull out at the last minute to disgrace the country.
But when it later emerged that Simpson had bowed out of the games due to a kidney problem, she suddenly received some sympathy from Ghanaians.
Some of them that spoke to the paper wished the super star a speedy recovery from her ailment.
George Gyasi of Coventry prayed that the Heptathlon star would overcome her sickness and return fit to the tracks very soon.
