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.

Yes, the greatest Olympian in history is the athlete whose achievements keep the teenager motivated and he is determined to emulate the multiple Olympic champion.

Michael Phelps works very hard and takes in details, there are some people who just work on their diet and techniques, but Phelps concentrates much on his diving skill and corrects the mistakes he does,” he told StarrFm.
