Snow Leopard Makes Winter Olympic Debut for Ghana

Kwame Nkrumah-Acheampong, the first Ghanaian to qualify for the Winter Olympics, is set to make Ghana’s debut at a Winter Olympic Games tomorrow. Kwame is due to race in the Slalom starting at 19.00 (GMT) tomorrow on BBC 2 or the red button at 18.00 (GMT).

Kwame, known as the snow leopard, has overcome many challenges to fulfill his Olympic dream and with no support to date from the Ghanaian Olympic committee he has had to rely on his sponsors Paddy Power to help fund his Olympic dream.

Kwame has received a huge welcome in Canada and the world’s media have clamoured for an interview with one of the inspiring stories of the games. Coming from a country that has no snow, Kwame skied for the first time just over six years ago when he got a job as a receptionist at a snow centre in the UK. Two years later he skied for the first time outdoors and subsequent races ultimately led to Olympic qualification.

With so many obstacles in his way Paddy Power currently has him at 500/1 to win gold but is aiming to not come last and is 7/2 to beat two rivals.

Paddy Power however has also given Kwame a £1,000 charity bet on himself, all winnings will go to his charities The Snow Leopard Trust, Sabre and Snow Camp, and has backed himself to be in front of three of his competitors.

Paddy Power said "Everyone at Paddy Power is right behind Kwame and believe he is going to have a great race, we even hope he wins his bet with us!"

Kwame Nkrumah-Acheampong, The Snow Leopard said "I can’t believe my race is finally here, having seen everyone else compete I just want to get out there. Thanks to everyone who supported me from my family, support team and of course sponsors Paddy Power! Watch out here comes the Snow Leopard!"
