Zach Lund named Ghana Bobsled/Skeleton Head Performance Director Zach Lund named Ghana Bobsled/Skeleton Head Performance Director[/caption] The Bobsled and Skeleton Federation – Ghana is excited to announce that World Class Skeleton competitor Zach Lund has been named head performance director of Team Ghana. Zach previously coached the USA Skeleton Team and helped Team USA to win three Olympic medals in racing. “I have 20 years of experience being an athlete and a coach,” Lund said. “I know I can bring the knowledge and experience” to help team Ghana compete. Lund won two bronze medals at the International Bobsleigh Federation (FIBT) World Championships with one in Men’s skeleton in 2007 and one in the mixed bobsled-skeleton team event in 2008.  He finished #1 in the World Cup standings in 2007.

He says the decision to join Team Ghana as head performance director was an easy one. “It’s not about the nation winning medals,” Lund said. “It’s about being with people who are there for the right reasons. The Olympics are about bringing people together.”
Working with Team Ghana allows Lund to work with Akwasi Frimpong, Ghana’s first skeleton athlete, and just the country’s second winter Olympian. “He is more than a coach,” said Frimpong of the new coach. “He is a mentor and we are blessed to have him on board. In 2022, Team Ghana wants to do more than just participate. We want to be competitive and Olympic level direction is necessary.” Lund says he is inspired working with Frimpong and the goal is to get him onto the Olympic podium and to grow the sport in Ghana. He says Frimpong’s motivation, spirit and drive are what makes the Olympics so special and why it will be great working with him. “It’s about the small nations being on the same playing field with the larger nations, competing against them,” says Lund.  “That’s what I love about the Olympics.” Bobsled and Skeleton Federation – Ghana founded July 5, 2016a is an associated member of the International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation (IBSF). They are dedicated to nurturing the bobsleigh and skeleton talent of Ghana. For more information send email to contact@bsfghana.com Source: Ghana Bobsled and Skeleton Federation]]>
