The road to winning Africa’s first winter Olympic Games medal is long and hard. Your support will go a long way. “Your support is appreciated”


International athlete Akwasi Frimpong made history in 2018 when he became the first Skeleton athlete from Ghana. Akwasi was just the second Winter Olympian from Ghana. In 2020 he became the first skeleton athlete from Africa to win an elite skeleton race sanctioned by the USA Bobsled and Skeleton Federation in Park City, Utah. Now, Akwasi wants to use his passion and his own inspirational story to represent not just a country, but a continent. Akwasi was born and raised in Ghana and moved to the Netherlands when he was eight. He didn’t start running until he was 15, and hasn’t stopped since. Akwasi refused to allow life’s challenges to derail an athletic career that includes more than a dozen medals in international events. In short, he used setbacks to make giant strides forward.

In addition to being an Olympic athlete, Akwasi is also a father, entrepreneur and public speaker who has inspired thousands of people. In fact, Akwasi says one of the best days of his life was knowing his then-9-month-old daughter was watching him fulfill his Olympic dream. Akwasi’s belief that anything is possible with resilience, determination and hard work led him to his appearance in the 2018 Winter Olympics, a journey he believes will inspire The Hope of a Billion in the years ahead.

Akwasi believes what you need for success is already planted deep down inside of you. He believes success comes from believing in yourself with a positive attitude combined with hard work and persistence.

It is that positive attitude Akwasi will use to fuel him to become Africa’s first Winter Olympics medalist and along the way inspire everyone to overcome their own adversity with courage, and share #TheHopeOfABillion.

Being the Hope of a Billion is being an example for more than a billion Africans who have been told their dreams are not possible.  I want to be the example that any dream, whether it is being a doctor, a lawyer, or an Olympian, is possible with hard work, dedication and perseverance.

Hope of a Billion is setting a goal to do the unthinkable.  For me, it is becoming the first African to win a winter medal in the winter Olympics.  Being that example is one of the things that makes me work so hard, because everything worth doing, requires hard work.It’s becoming the HOPE for a billion underdogs who refuse to give up on their dreams.
