Ghana's swimming star, Abeiku Jackson, has achieved a lot in his sport even as a 15 year old but is yet to breakthrough into the international ranks. However, that is set to change soon.

A pioneer of a Ghana’s swim team, Jackson has been all over the world over the past three years competing for Ghana and was even a member of Ghana’s Commonwealth Games contingent to Glasgow in 2014 but has chosen a role model to get him to the top.

Michael Phelps.
