Accra, July 6, GNA – Golden Arms, the National
Armwrestling team has paid a courtesy call on Mr. Isaac Kwame Asiamah, the
Minister of Youth and Sports.

Mr Charles Osei Asibey, President of the Arm
wrestling Federation led the delegation to present their medals to the
Minister.

The Golden Arms won 22 medals and placed
second at the just ended African Armwrestling Championship in Nigeria.

Speaking at the event, Mr Asiamah praised the
team for their performance and urged the arm wrestlers to continuing making
Ghana proud in their subsequent competitions.

“On behalf of the president of Ghana, I
want to congratulate you for this remarkable achievement. I am not surprised at
all with your performance because I have monitored you for a while now and I am
proud of you all.

“The federation has done well so far, you
have been going round hunting for talents and I am happy with that. You are not
concentrating on Accra alone and that was why you were able to assemble the
best wrestlers.

“I want to urge other federations to
follow suit, they must make the games strong in the country before thinking of
travelling for international competitions. The games are for Ghanaians and they
must understand that first”, Mr. Asiamah said.

Mr. Asiamah promised that the Government would
support the Federation as they prepare to host the African Armwrestling
Championship in Accra next year.

“I want to assure you that we would give
all the support you need to host the championship next year,” he added.
