 The international athlete Akwasi Frimpong made history in 2018 when he became the first Skeleton athlete from Ghana.

Now, he wants to use his passion and his own inspirational story to represent not just a country, but a continent.

Akwasi believes what you need for success is already planted deep down inside of you. He believes success comes from believing in yourself with a positive attitude combined with hard work and persistence. It is that positive attitude Akwasi will use to fuel him to become Africa’s first Winter Olympics medalist and along the way inspire everyone to overcome their own adversity with courage.
