Spotlight…AZIZ S. ADIMAH
With a strong sense of purpose and a great will and desire to achieve the best, he has risen above the expectations of most family and friends.
Well then, isports360 acknowledges his efforts and zeal and think there is more to be achieved by this folk.
He was introduced to field hockey in this country about 16years ago.
He played Exchequers Hockey Club right from 2002 to 2008, went on a break and joined the club again in 2010 to 2013.
He featured in several tournaments for his club including the Africa Cup for Club Champions.
Unlike other sports men, somewhere along the line, he chose to create a path of his own instead of going through the normal routine of set targets of most sports men.
He decided to play with the whistle and the red, yellow, and green cards instead of stick and the sheen guard.
While introduced to the latter, he still never forsaked the former.
Aziz, as he is affectionately called has been able to rise to become a recognised FIH umpire.
Officiating in the Youth Olympics final in 2014, Youth Olympics Qualifiers in 2015, numerous ACCC tournaments, and the finals of the just ended Greenfield Africa Nations Cup in South Africa.
He is also the first ever African to umpire in the Youth Olympics Final.
Speaking to isports360, the hero said he has a vision of becoming an FIH grade 1 umpire in the shortest possible time and also the vision of becoming the first West African to umpire in the Olympic games in 2020.
God bless his hustle.
Kudos to him and the other officials in the umpiring fraternity.
Umpiring is a wonderful section of the game, and the youth getting involved will really be worth it.
isports360 also says, mistakes are inevitable and just like how players and coaches one way or the other make mistakes on the field of play, umpires are no exception.
More grease to the elbows of an inspirational member of the isports crew, #NiiNortey#
Amongst all, AZIZ ADIMAH DESERVES A HUG AND SOME CRITICS OF COURSE.
