VIDEO: How Samuel Takyi secured a first Olympic medal for Ghana since 1992 – Citi Sports Online


Summary short_text

Twenty-year old Samuel Takyi ended Ghana's 29 year wait for an Olympic medal with a spirited come-from-behind victory against Colombia's David Avila Ceiber in the featherweight division of the Olympic boxing event in Tokyo.

It is Ghana's first Olympic medal since the Black Meteors won bronze at the 1992 games in Barcelona.

The medal is also the fourth at the games for Ghana in the boxing event, with Takyi joining the illustrious group of Clement Quartey - 1960- Silver, Eddie Blay - 1964- Bronze and Prince Amartey - 1972 - Bronze, as the only men to ever win Ghana an individual olympic medal.
