CEO of Geodrill Makes Big Promise To Ghanaian Athletes Going To Tokyo 020 Olympics Games

… “Win Gold And Take Home $10,000”

President & CEO of Geodrill (Exploration Drillers in West & Central Africa) sub-regions Mr Dave Harper has on behalf of the Company pledged to pay a cedis equivalent of *US$10,000* (Ten Thousand Dollars) to any  Ghanaian athlete who wins a Gold Medal at the upcoming Tokyo2020 Olympics to be held in Japan,23rd July to August,23rd.

He made the promise when members of the Ghana National Boxing Team, Black Bombers paid a visit to his office at the Airport Residential Area in Accra to thank him for his support prior to the  Africa Olympics Boxing Qualifiers held in Dakar-Senegal, February,2020 and also brief him on  local preparations (non & residential) so far before they embark on a month pre-games tour on Monday 23rd June,2021 for acclimatization & psychological tune up in the Ishawashiro - Japan.

The main idea behind such audacious promise he opined  "Ghana is yet to win a Gold medal at the Olympics since it started participation in 1952,as a Gold exploring outfit, we aspires for Gold,so it will defeat our  ideals & mission to reward Silver and Bronze which Ghana won in the Rome 1960-Silver by Clement Ike Quartey and Eddie Blay Snr and Prince Amartey clinching the the other two bronze at 1964 and 1972 Tokyo also in Munich games respectively all coming from Boxing (Black Bombers) until football, Black Meteors (National U-23)  won Bronze in Barcelona,1992 games  taking Ghana's total medal haul to 4."

After hosting the Bombers and officials to a special lunch, Mr Harper donated an undisclosed amount of money, a book & CD on the life story of the great Samuel Azumah Nelson to each of the Bombers and officials present.The Team also received 50 pieces of specially branded GEODRILL Tokyo2020 Olympics Bombers T-shirts.

Present included - Mr George Lamptey, President GBF, JoJo Ephson - Communication Officer, Coaches Ofori Asare and his assistant Vicent Akai Nettey (Washington), the three Boxers qualified to represent Ghana at the upcoming games - Sulemanu Tetteh- Flyweight (Captain), Samuel Takyi - Featherweight and Shakul Samed - Light Heavyweight.
