Winner - John Nyakeh Foday

Sport as we know is taking a new trend in Sierra Leone, and it is amazing how our youths put a lot of time and hard work into it lately.  There are a lot of sports men and women excelling in the sports field and trying to reach excellence, but lime light has been drawn to a particular young man, John Nyakeh Foday, our winner for Young Sports Personality 2019. He has been showing off his exceptional talent in various basketball games since he first started playing. Earning the title ‘Captain’ was no mistake at all, and to prove he deserved it, he exhibited his skills in various championship games, where he ended up taking the trophies home with his team members. Nyakeh is self-driven when it comes to achieving his goals, one of which is to become the best basketball player in the country.

Nyakeh Foday is a point guard who plays for the Archibald Red Flames Basketball Club, and the Sierra Leone National team as well. Both teams see a lot of potential in this young man, and helps him to work towards reaching his goals. He has become a role model for both old and young people who are interested in sports and because of this, he sees failure as an enemy, so fights very hard to succeed in whatever he has to do to continue making his fans proud. Because Nyakeh’s personality portrays hard work and determination, he has been chosen to represent his team and the country at various basketball competitions, both nationally and internationally. He has a very humble personality. His game spirit is one to admire and has won the hearts of many Sierra Leoneans.
