The manager Charles Abeiku-Forson had and interview with Africapush.com and below is his statement;
As William amponsah is flying to London, Newcastle for the great north run today, trust me he would be flying with private jet soon as he aspire to be the world champion.
All what we are expecting from him is to make another great step ahead in getting closer to his world champion dream with a personal Best Record. He is the first Ghanaian to run this powerful race and the people are behind him as Amponsah is also motivated to run along with his mentor Kinenisa Bekele who is a record holder.
