President of the Ghana Armwrestling Federation, Charles Osei Asibey, has indicated that the sport will enhance Ghana’s medal haul during the 13th Africa Games.

The Local Organising Committee (LOC) for Accra 2023 selected Armwrestling as one of the 25 sports disciplines to compete at the Games which is slated for August 2023.

Ranked highly in Africa, Ghana Armwrestling has promoted, developed, and encouraged the participation of the sport by many on the continent.

Ghana Armwrestling has produced some of the best technical officials in the persons of Mr. Kofi Addo-Agyekum-Chairman of Covid-19 Safety Committee, Dr. Prince Pambo – Vice Chairman of the Medical & Anti Doping Committee, Mr. Kenneth Odeng Adade – Chairman of Media & Publicity, Husseini Akuetteh Addy – Director for Training in Africa.

Elated President Osei Asibey revealed that the recruitment process begins immediately and the development of coaches and referees will intensify to enable Ghana to position itself for the expected opposition from continental giants like South Africa, Egypt, and Mali.

“In preparation for the Games, we are recruiting for the Golden Arms (National Team) through the school system by getting students from the junior and senior high schools as well as those from the tertiary level,” he said.

“They will compete in the 2022 Africa Armwrestling Championships, the World Championships, and other invitational events in preparation for the Games,” he continued.

Led by President Charles Osei Asibey, World Armwrestling General Secretary-Mircea Simionescu-Simicel, Eng. Samuel Jackson, Nasr Yussif, and Husseini Akuetteh Addy, all of the Africa Armwrestling Federation joined the pitching team to justify why their discipline should be included in the Pan-African Games.

Officials of Armwrestling at the First Joint Technical Meeting of the LOC for Accra 2023 held at the Alisa Hotel in Accra last week.

Meanwhile, President Osei Asibey extended appreciation to the Ministry of Youth & Sports, National Sports Authority, the board of the LOC for Accra 2023, Mr. Kofi Addo-Agyekum, the Armwrestling Board member, the pullers, coaches partners, and the media for their support and encouragement.
