Golden Arms present trophy, medals to Twellium Industries
The national armwrestling team, Golden Arms, has presented the trophy it won at the just-ended ninth Africa Armwrestling Championship to the headline sponsor of the event, Twellium Industrial Company.
Twellium sponsored the event with their Go On Energy Drink, which led to the team winning a record 88 medals at the two-day event.
Supervisor at Twellium, Brenda Amoateng, who welcomed the team, congratulated them for making the country proud and their sponsorship worth it.
She said the company will continue to support the development and growth of sports in the country by partnering with fast-growing sports like the armwrestling.
She added that their doors are open for any kind of collaboration between the two bodies and they would be ready to grow the sport of armwrestling together.
President of the Ghana Armwrestling Federation (GAF), Charles Osei Asibey thanked the management of Twellium for their continuous support to the growth of game.
He appealed to the company to sponsor at least four athletes for the upcoming World Armwrestling Championship to be staged in October this year at Turkey.
He also urged them to adopt armwrestling as their own and come on board to be partners of the yet-to-be-introduced armwrestling league, which would be the first in the country.
Captain of the team, Edward Asamoah also commended the management of Twellium for believing in them and supporting them to make history in the country.
He assured them that the team would continue to do their best for the country and also raise the flag of Ghana high wherever they find themselves.
