Sportsmen in secondary schools are really a different breed.
During our Senior High School days, the people who participated in sports totally came across like seniors to most of us. Even where they were indeed our mate! But don't take our word for it, serial Facebook commentator, Francis Obirikorang has put together a list of the unique things you can notice about sportsmen in Ghanaian senior high schools.
It's really a short list, but we think you'd agree;
1. Concrete Dumbbells
Because the school can't afford anything else!
2. Blunt Javelins
Or better still "pestles" as javelins. Seriously, though.
3. Bamboos for pole vault
Again because the school can't afford the real things
4. Overage Athletes
This is the part we can't think far about. Some athletes would be looking twice our age but claim they are SHS students.
To be fair, Francis shared this post for just Apam Secondary School, but we think it can apply to every SHS in Ghana. Do you think same too? Send us a message via Facebook, Twitter or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
