Sports women advised to unite and promote themselves

Madam Gifty Annan Myers first president of the Ghana Rugby Football Union has urged female sports personalities to unite and support themselves.
Speaking at the Women In Sports Association (WISA) third anniversary which was marked with a Health Walk and Awards Ceremony held at the forecourt of the Accra Sports Stadium on Saturday, she said women must help each other and tell their own stories.

She recounted forming the Ghana Rugby Football Union and people wondered how a lady could lead in the organization of Rugby, which she did and rose to become an executive member of the African Rugby Union.

Madam Fredrika Mensa Davies of the National Sports Authority (NSA) commended the executives of WISA, a non-governmental organization for their vision to reward some outstanding sportswomen, which is going to motivate other young girls to do sports.

Madam Elizabeth King of the Ghana Hockey Association and a former GOC member advised girls and ladies involved in sports to be disciplined, courageous, determined and focused to succeed.

Rosalind Amoh, deputy sports editor of the Graphic Sports said females must prove that they can do it and cautioned female sports journalists to be bold but respectful and rub shoulders with the men.

Naa Darkua Dodoo, PRO of the Ghana Boxing Authority (GBA) hinted that it was  exciting working in sectors than men dominate, but with humility, confidence and hard work, one can be recognized and rewarded.

Rosemary Gaisie, president of WISA NGO expressed that the significance of the event was  to let people know that hard work can be recognised and rewarded.
