Addressing the students, the Assistant Headmaster of the Dansoman SHS, Mr Johnson Odonkor congratulated the winners for their sterling performance.

He said as an educational institution that believes in the mantra "all work and no play", the school will continue to give such opportunities to the students to help identify their hidden talents.

The competition produced top performers like Black Stars skipper Asamoah Gyan, former national table tennis star Eric Amoah among a host of other sporting talents.

He informed that soccer and track and field competitions were scrapped this year due to the absence of their traditional venue, the Azumah Nelson Sports Complex which is currently under reconstruction.
