Jamaican sprint legend, Asafa Powell has said he will give his children his full blessings if they decide to represent Ghana as athletes.[ads2]
Powell is married to a Ghanaian wife with two children, which means the kids can choose to represent either Ghana or Jamaica.
Despite his huge achievements for Jamaica in athletics, Asafa Powell who sees his children following his footsteps, has said he will support his children if they decide to represent Ghana instead of the Caribbean country.[ads3]
“I have kids, two of them with my current wife. With her being Ghanaian, there is going to be pressure on which country they compete for but … My kids have shown signs of being athletic,” Powell said, as quoted by Pulse.
“I will support them. I will just be the supporting factor and guide them where sports are concerned. If they want to compete for Ghana, I will support them and if they pick Jamaica, I will support them.”
Asafa Powell has been in Ghana for the past weeks on vacation and currently touring some places in the country.[ads4]
