During the launch of the Man Ghana 2020 event at the Accra sports stadium ,the commissioner elaborated that females have a lot to offer ; the backbone of every sports is fitness and that’s what they bring to the table.
According to Mrs. Bambi Bamfo,not until 2016 the Association had only one female Athlete to compete in international bodybuilding but did well to place fourth and came home with a medal and this inspired the Association to uplift the female side of Bodybuilding.

Currently the female team have 8 strong women ,one being a figure Athlete, one physique Athlete and six bikini Athletes”.
