PRESIDENT of the Ghana Arm wrestling Federation (GAF) Charles Osei Asibey, was at the weekend honoured with a Presidential Award from the President of the Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG), Kwabena Yeboah.
Mr Osei Asibey, known in media cycles as ‘Barrister’ was awarded for his exceptional contribution to the success of SWAG and sports development in general.
He received ‘The President’s Award’ at the just-held 44th MTN SWAG Awards night held at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) last Saturday.
Mr Yeboah eulogised Osei Asibey’s dedication and commitment to the growth of SWAG and the Armwrestling Federation and urged him to keep up with his good works.
“As President of one of the youngest but successful National Sports Federation in the country, Charles’ unique contribution to the development of sports in the country cannot be overlooked.”
As a Federation President, Mr Osei Asibey stood against all odds to host the 2018 Africa Armwrestling Championship in the country which was described by many as one of the well-organised sporting events in the country.
He has also been Chairman of the Planning Committee for the MTN SWAG Awards night which has always left patrons wanting to see what the Association has in stock for the following year.
Speaking to the media, ‘Barrister’ said he was grateful to the SWAG President and the entire membership for the honour done him and assured him and the Association of his unflinching support to the development of sports journalism and sports in total.
