Ghanaian body builder, Oliver Rockson Prempeh excelled in South Africa when he won gold in the middleweight category of the annual Arnold Classic Africa bodybuilding competition.


Having failed to lift the gold last year, Prempeh says he purposed to win this time around attributing the success to adherence to strict dieting and bountiful rest as prescribed by his coach.

Three other Ghanaian competitors, Cyrille Kofi Adja who competed in the Men’s Bodybuilding under 90kg and Michael Parnell who competed in the Men’s Bodybuilding under 70kg as well Godwin Frimpong who vied for the Men’s Bodybuilding under 80kg failed to bring a trophy home.


A delighted Oliver took to social media to express thanks to the following:

//Foremost I give thanks to the almighty God for how far he has brought me. My second thanks goes to my coach Mike Asiedu and Victor Baiden who put me through training and nutrition, my last thanks goes to everyone who supported me far and near. The journey to greatness has only begun.

God bless us all!!!//
