The Ghana Armwrestling Federation (GAF) has partnered with Kaysports to unveil the 2022 official competition jersey for the national armwrestling team, the Golden Arms, ahead of the 2022 Africa Armwrestling Championship in Lagos, Nigeria.
The new kit, sponsored by United Media Consult and K-Balm ointment from Kofikrom Pharmacy which has a little touch of red, yellow, green, and a black collar with a nearly embossed watermark of the GAF logo is produced by Kaysports, a sports kit and athlete management company in Ghana
The newly designed apparel would be the competition kit for the Golden Arms during the continental championship in Lagos.
Mr. Charles Osei Asibey, the President of the Ghana Armwrestling Federation speaking at the unveiling ceremony thanked Kaysports for presenting jerseys to the federation ahead of the 2022 tournament and highly praised the Minister for Youth & Sports Hon. Ussif Mustapha, the Chief Director Alhaji Hafiz, the National Sports Authority Boss Professor Peter Twumasi, and the NSA Board for their efforts towards team Ghana.
He particularly eulogized Pharm Kofi Addo-Agyekum and Kofikrom Pharmacy for the unflinching and unquantified investment in Armwrestling since 2016. He prayed on stakeholders to come to their aid as Armwrestling having been added to the sports codes for the Africa Games has become a sport of choice in Ghana.
Mr. Kofi Addo-Agyekum, the vice president of the federation and Chief Executive Officer of Kofikrom Pharmacy, 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 of that sort, we have won lots of medals so I know we can bring the trophy home,” he said
He further tasked them to be disciplined, tolerant, and put up good behaviours as they head to the tournament.
Mr. Kwame Ameyaw 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 20 pullers and other officials, would be leaving the shores of Ghana on Tuesday, July 19, 2022, as they look forward to making yet another history at the championship.
Ghana would be taking part in the 11th edition of the African Armwrestling Championship in Lagos, Nigeria slated from July 19 to 24,2022 as they battle other African countries for the grand prize.
