    Maybe not too many people know but Ghana now has a rep for the winter Olympics in Vancouver next year. He qualified last month.

    He is known as the snow leopard and has only been skiing since 2004. He actually tried going for the last Olympics in Italy but missed out. This time around he has obviously improved.

    Great story on a guy who fell in love with a snow sport and has taken it seriously, sacrificed a lot and made it to the Olympics.

    I'm guessing he'll be a big star at the Olympics just like Eddie the eagle was.
