Africa Swimming President In Ghana For Continental Championship

    Mr. Sam Ramsamy, President of African Swimming Confederation from South Africa is in Ghana for the 14th continental championship.
    He was welcomed at the airport by the President of the Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC) Mr. Ben Nunoo Mensah, President of Ghana Swimming Association, Mrs. Delphina Quaye Mrs. Helena Williams and Miss Farida Idriss (Treasurer), and some executive members of the Ghana Swimming Association.
    Mr. Ramsamy prayed for a successful event which should be a dress rehearsal for the African Games to be held in Ghana in 2023.
    He commended the Ghana Swimming Association for deciding to host the championship for the first time after the successful hosting of the junior championship.

    Mr. Ben Nunoo Mensah promised that Ghana will host one of the best competitions, and was convinced that Ghanaian swimmers will shine and win medals.
    He called on people living in James Town, Korle Gonno, Mamprobi, and Chorkor to patronize the event and appealed to parents to allow their children to learn how to swim.
    Mrs. Delphina Quaye commended the nations who have made it to Ghana, and prayed that they will enjoy the hospitality.
    Miss Farida Iddriss said in spite of challenges in getting sponsors, they will organize one of the best competitions. She called on the media to support swimming.
    The 14th African Swimming Championship comes up at the Trust Sports Emporium in Accra from October 11 to 17, 2021.
    Over 30 countries are expected to participate, and Ghana’s young swimmers led by Abeiku Jackson who competed at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games are sure of robbing shoulders with the best in Africa, especially swimmers from South Africa, Egypt, Senegal and Algeria.
