PERSONAL: Craig BLACKMAN (mediadiversified.org, 7 Sep 2016)


Reason: At age 16, four years after migrating from Ghana to Canada, he grasped the opportunity to embrace athletics. “I have always loved to run, but because of my visual impairments, I was limited. But when I got introduced to the possibilities of running with a guide runner, that was when I started to look at running at the highest level. (ameyawdebrah.com, 29 Jul 2016)
Ambition: “I want to change the way people view people with a disability in Ghana. I want to start a para team there one day. I’m pretty sure there are lots of people that want to do sport, but they don’t have enough people with the knowledge on how to deal with disabilities. (mediadiversfied.org, 7 Sep 2016)
