QUICK FACTS 

 

  • Azumah Nelson is the biggest name to have come out of the National Sports Festival
  • He came from nowhere, joining the prisons Service at the last hour to beat everybody to a Gold medal in Amateur Boxing at the age of 20 in the 1978 event.
  • Azumah eventually rode on to become not only a Ghanaian and African legend, but also a Commonwealth and world champion and an all-time worldwide boxing great.
  • The National Sports Festival was first staged in the 1970s
  • Handball was first competed for in the National Sports Festival in 1977
  • Disabled Sports and Karate-Do are making their debuts in the National Unity Games this year (2011)
  • Only two Ghanaian Cities-Accra and Kumasi-have ever hosted the National Unity Games
  • The last two National Unity Games-1997 and 2004-were held in Kumasi. The other years when Kumasi was the host city were 1972 and 1985.
