TT Brothers Hails Olympic Team

Isaac Tetteh, aka TT Brothers

Uncle T United FC President, Isaac Tetteh, also known as TT Brothers, has hailed Team Ghana’s performance at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Japan, Tokyo.

Ghana returned home with just a medal; bronze, in boxing.

But the former Hearts of Oak management member believes the athletes respective individual brilliance deserves commendation.

He stated that Featherweight boxer, Samuel Takyi, Ghana’s sole   medalist, breaking a 29-year medal drought should be celebrated.

He has, therefore, charged authorities and other stakeholders to begin preparation for tournaments well ahead of time.

TT Brothers said, “Our athletes didn’t disgrace themselves at all. Let’s draw positives from their participation and build on that for future competitions.”

He added, “The exposure and experience alone will help build their confidence. Individually, they set new records and broke existing ones, let’s build on that.

“We shouldn’t wait till few months to tournament to get prepared. I believe if we had started earlier than they started, they would have returned home with more medals. Notwithstanding that, l think we should commend them for the individual brilliance.”

The Managing Director of TT Brothers Limited has as a result commended President Akufo-Addo for the reward package for Takyi in particular, and Team Ghana in general.

Last Friday, the President announced a USD10,000 winning bonus for   Takyi when Team Ghana called on him at the Jubilee House. He has also been promised a salon car, and USD20,000, which would be injected in a Career Development Fund for him for the next Olympic Games and future tournaments.

All other members of the team would get a USD5,000 bonus for their efforts.

President Akufo-Addo made the announcement when the Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC) called at the Jubilee House, Accra, to present the medal to him.

The entire team, including the trainers of the athletes, the technical and management officials, would share a total of USD150,000.

Takyi, a 20-year-old boxer, won a bronze medal in the men’s featherweight division in the games after losing to Duke Reagan of the United States of America (USA) in their semi-final duel.
