Akwasi Frimpong Is Set To Make Ghana Proud At The 2018 Winter Olympics



In case if you did not know, Akwasi Frimpong is Ghana’s only representative at the 2018 Winter Olympics. The event which kicked off on Friday at Pyeongchang Olympic Stadium in South Korea has many amazing athletes from 92 countries competing for the top spot.

As expected, Akwasi Frimpong (Ghana’s first skeleton athlete) is pretty optimistic he would be victorious. “I battled for 13 years,” Frimpong tells CNN Sport. “Giving up was an option, but being patient and persistent nurtured the champion from within. Me going to the Games is a message to anyone out there that is dreaming of something big.”

Akwasi is a 31-year-old husband and father of one who relocated to Netherlands with his mum at the age of eight. Wishing him the very best
