Binatone Ghana invited Mr. Samuel Takyi – Ghana’s sole medallist at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics; the Team President, Mr. George Lamptey; the coach, Mr. Ofori Asare, and others from the Black Bombers Team to its premises with the main purpose of appreciating the winner of Africa’s only Boxing Medallist at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics – and Ghana’s Olympic Medallist since 1992.
In his welcome address, the Managing Director of Binatone Ghana, Mr. Venu Babu, congratulated Mr. Takyi on his unique achievement at the just-ended Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan. He also said Mr. Takyi made Ghana proud and “we are proud of him”. Many countries participated, but not all of them went home with medals. Ghana is among the countries that went home with a medal. Ghana achieved this because of Mr. Samuel Takyi’s dedication, hard work and sacrifice.
Mr. Venu Babu further stated that Binatone is well-known worldwide for over 60 years of excellence in quality home appliances and has been in Ghana for over 25 years. Excellence is also Mr. Samuel Takyi’s present achievement in boxing, and they are sure Mr. Takyi has made the Ghana Boxing Association also very proud. The training they gave him has borne fruit.
In their various responses, Mr. Samuel Takyi’s Team thanked the company for this noble and laudable gesture. They added that Binatone is the first company to recognise Mr. Takyi’s incredible accomplishment and invite them to their premises.
They entreated the company to support their efforts, as they are training young people as young as seven years to become future boxers. Their latest discovery is Mr. Samuel Takyi.
They hope the meeting today will propel the company to give future assistance that leads to cooperation between the Ghana Boxing Association and Binatone, since the Commonwealth Games and other competitions are around the corner. They also look forward to a fruitful collaboration.
