The annual Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG) Awards has been put on hold as the executives and planning committee plan for a new date and venue in the midst of covid-19.

This year is the 45th time that the long standing unbreakable event is to be held to honour and reward the nation’s most outstanding sportsmen and women.

Physically challenged athlete Raphael Botsyo Nkegbe has been tipped to claim the prestigious SWAG Sports Personality of the year following his impressive performance in the year under review.

He has qualified to represent Ghana at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
