By winning bronze, the 20-year-old ended Ghana’s 29 years wait for an Olympic medal, with the country’s last medal coming at the Barcelona 1992 games.

The medal is also the fourth at the games for Ghana in the boxing event, with Takyi joining the illustrious group of Clement Quartey – 1960- Silver, Eddie Blay – 1964- Bronze and Prince Amartey – 1972 – Bronze, as the only men to ever win Ghana an individual Olympic medal.

In boxing at the Olympics, both losing semi-finals are awarded bronze medals, meaning Takyi will get a medal irrespective of the loss in the semi-final.
