The Ghana Armwrestling Federation (GAF) has partnered Kaysports, a leading sportswear manufacturer in Ghana to unveil the official jersey for team Ghana ahead of the 2022 Africa Armwrestling Championship in Lagos, Nigeria.
The new kit, which has a little touch of red, yellow, green and a black collar would be worn by the national armwrestling team, Golden Arms, at the African tournament.
Mr Charles Osei Asibey, President of the Ghana Armwrestling Federation, speaking at the unveiling ceremony thanked Kaysports for presenting Jersey to the federation ahead of the championship.
He said the kits of the national Armwrestling team would be changed every year if the federation gets the necessary funding and support and called on stakeholders to come to their aid.
Mr Kofi Addo-Agyekum, the vice president of the federation also urged the players to give out their best as they wear the jersey to represent Ghana.
“This is not the first time Ghana is going for such a competition, we have won lots of medals so I know we can bring the trophy home,” he said
He further tasked them to be disciplined, and tolerant and also put up good behaviours as they head to the tournament.
A representative from Kaysports also urged the national armwrestling team to train well as they seek to raise the flag of Ghana high and urged that Kaysports would have lots of engagement with GAF if team Ghana performs well.
The team, made up of 15 players and other officials, would be leaving the shores of Ghana this coming Tuesday as they look forward to making yet another history at the championship.
Ghana would be taking part in the 11th edition of the African Championship in Nigeria slated from July 19 to 24, 2022 as they battle other African countries for the grand prize.
