President congratulates Ghana’s Olympic medal winner

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has commended Ghana’s only medallist in the ongoing 2020 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.

Samuel Takyi, a 20-year-old boxer, won a bronze medal in the men’s featherweight division in the games after losing to Duke Ragan in their semifinal duel.

He is the first medallist from Ghana to have won a medal in any sport since the Barcelona Olympic Games in 1992 when the men’s football team won bronze.
