Young sprinter Michael Owusu Peprah of Mfantsipim School is now nursing big ambitions after emerging the overall best male athlete at the recently ended Central regional schools athletics competition.

Peprah won the 100 metres sprint final in a time of 11.00 seconds, the 200 metres event in 22.9 seconds and also led his School's relay quartet to win the 4x100 metres event.

The 19-year-old wants to seriously pursue athletics alongside his education and eventually help Ghana to win laurels at international events.

He said it is his dream to compete at the international level.

Physical Education instructor at Mfantsipim School in Cape Coast Mr Francis Kumatia said Peprah can become a big name in the future with the necessary support.

He said the youngster was serious with his training and has great potentials.

Good luck to him. I hope the Athletic Federation in Ghana or whatever they are called will give this chap the needed boost.
