In the News: Guyana Athlete Wins Medals at Peace Sports Festival

Guyanan national junior 100 and 200-metre sprinter, Goddis Accra, returned home Thursday after winning the 200m and placing second in the 100m at the annual Inter-Religious Peace Sports festival in South Korea.

The 18-year-old sprinter, who is a member of the Progressive Youth Club (Police), must have had a Guardian Angel on his shoulder when he left these shores as he had to overcome many obstacles in his successful sojourn.

Accra told Stabroek Sport that he encountered a delay in acquiring an in transit visa, and he had to spend six days in New Jersey in order to be placed on the next flight to South Korea.

The competition officially began July 5 but Accra, who arrived the following day, reached the track just minutes before the 100m heats were scheduled to be run.

Remarkably, Accra won his 100m heat and later went on to capture second place in the 100m final a few hours later that day.
