The competition was part of the annual extra-curricular sporting activities organised by the Agbozume East Circuit of the Ketu South directorate of the Ghana Education Service (GES). 

The seven-year-old placed 32nd out of a total of 40 girls drawn from ten basic schools under the circuit, who took part in the eight kilometre race starting from the Afiadenyigba Police barrier to the Agbozume Logove basic school. 

Mr. Gideon Seth Aryee Gideon, Headmaster of Ativuta Basic School in an interaction with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) after the competition on Friday, praised young Nayram for her sterling performance. 

He said although the young girl did not emerge overall winner in the competition, her pace in the race from start to finish was consistent and her stamina was astonishing, which needed commendation. 

“She was full of strength and determination from the start of the race to the end – if she is carefully groomed, she will reach greater heights,” Mr Aryee observed. 

He called on the young girl’s parents to support her to excel academically and in sports.
