He thanked everyone who voted for him, the award organisers, all the nominees in the sportsmanship category, and said “we won this together, your support means so much, I’m determined to outdo myself in the coming years”.

The award was being received by his able former coach on behalf of him, Coach Elorm Amenakpor made a brief statement last year by saying “awards can be won through determination and perseverance, he also added to it that, we have a lot of athletes out there simply because much attention has not been given to track and field, if we want to talk about medals, then I think, we need to give a lot of attention to track and field when you go to Ashanti region, Central and Greater Accra region, these are the heart of athletics thank you”.
