The Women In Sports Association (WISA) will honour 48 Sports Personalities on Saturday, September 25, 2021, at the Accra Sports Stadium.

They include the two females who represented Ghana at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, sports journalists, administrators, coaches and supporters.

President of WISA, Madam Gloria Commodore, a veteran sports journalist who is a member of SWAG and AIPS said it is encouraging to recognize and reward individuals who stand up and work very hard.

She said due to Covid-19, the event was not held in 2020, so the winners have become plenty.

She appealed to companies and people who love sports to support the WISA initiative which is in its 7th season.

Madam Gloria Commodore commended the media (SWAG), the Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC) and National Sports Authority (NSA) for supporting WISA and the Awards Programme.

The event will see the performance of some super exciting female artists to grace the occasion.
