Travel and tours heavyweight African Origin Travels and Sports Tourism has sent congratulatory messages to Ghana's Para Cycling team (Power Riders) and Asante Kotoko on their respective feats a few days ago.

The Power Riders secured the London 2012 ticket after recording precious points in the C-2 Class.

Alem Mumuni maintained his African number status, while Ernest Ayisi and Abubakari Zakari finished as the Continent's number two and three respectively.

In like manner, the C-5 Category saw John Mensah Badu and Thomas Ayine producing spirited performances to emerge Africa's number two and three in that order.

On their part, Kotoko left good footprints in Dar es Salam, Tanzania, after beating Simba Sports 1-0 to lift the Uhuru Cup as part of the country's 50 th anniversary celebrations.

'This is to pat you on the back for acting as worthy ambassadors in your respective campaigns. You have done Ghana proud and we wish to congratulate you on your feats,' a release from the communications department of African Origin has said.

Praising the Power Riders, the release indicated: 'We at African Origin Travels would like to urge you to take your training a step further as you prepare for the London 2012 campaign, and as the official ticket resellers for the London Olympics, we would like to pledge our support when the need arises.'

The release added: 'Kotoko's feat in Tanzania is ample testimony of the quality of the local league. They have done the entire nation proud, and we are proud of them.'

And by their tradition, the Travel and Tours giant lifted some media practitioners to Tanzania to provide coverage for the international ceremonial game.
