The Chief Executive Officer of GEODRILL, a leading exploration drilling company in Ghana, has promised to support two members of the national amateur boxing team, Sulemanu Tetteh and Samuel Takyi in their preparations towards the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games in August.

Mr Dave Harper noted that GEODRILL would continue to support the development of boxing in the country in order to help the two qualified boxers win laurels for the state at the upcoming Olympics.

During the Olympic qualifiers in the Senegalese capital Dakar last month, flyweight Tetteh and featherweight Takyi secured two slots for Ghana at the summer Olympics.

In an interview with the Daily Graphic, Mr Harper noted that GEODRILL had been supporting boxing for the past 10 years and would maintain its good relations with the Ghana Boxing Federation and the Ghana Olympic Committee.

“GEODRILL is a long time supporter of Ghana boxing, we took the Black Bombers to Australia for the Commonwealth Games in 2018 and we will continue to support them.

“We are ready to support the two qualified athletes throughout their preparations to the Olympics to ensure they win laurels for the country,” he said.

Last month, the company presented five air tickets worth about GHc17,000 and an undisclosed amount of money to support the national amateur team, the Black Bombers, before they travelled to Dakar for the qualifiers.
