Basketballghana.com can confirm Para Athlete Raphael Botsyo Nkegbe has been nominated in the Personality of the Year category at the MTN Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG) Awards.
The Wheelchair Basketball Player and Racer has been nominated in the flagship category of the 45th edition of the annual award scheme.
He has been nominated alongside Boxer Richard Oblitey Commey and Ghana’s 4×100 Relay Team in the category while securing qualification to a fourth Olympic Games due to take place next year.
This development comes on the heels of Nkegbe bagging the Para Athlete of the Year Award recently after a dominant campaign thus far.
The celebrated athlete won four gold medals in the latter part of 2019 and early part of 2020 prior to the onset of the corona virus pandemic.
He won Gold at the OCC Marathon in South Africa this and bagged the 2019 Atlanta Open and Desert Challenge both in the USA. Nkegbe’s four Olympic Games qualification berths is a national record.
