Bernard Tampuli, has etched his name in the record books as the first Level 100 student to win the Inter-Halls Cross Country race in the Akenten Appiah-Menka University of Skills Training and Entrepreneurial Development (AAMUSTED).

At the end of the 10km race which serves as the qualifiers for the Ghana Universities Sports Association (GUSA) Cross-Country, Mr. Tampuli has set a new record by clocking a time of 32 minutes and 26 seconds, an improvement on last year’s time of 36.13 seconds clocked by Womborekye Noah.

Having exceeded expectations at the 2022 cross-country festival at the University of Health and Allied Science (UHAS), Ho, the young Tampuli and his colleagues are expected to achieve laurels at the 2023 GUSA Cross-country at the University of Ghana, Legon to be staged at the end of March, 2023.

They were also awarded certificates and cash prices during the climax of the event held at the University’s Football Park on Saturday, March 4, 2023.
