`SNOW LEOPARD’ IS PRIDE OF GHANA

Among the handful of not-quite-elite Olympic entrants from non-traditional skiing countries, Kwame Nkrumah-Acheampong manages to stand out.

You can spot the “Snow Leopard”, as he’s known, by the leopard-print racing suit he’ll be wearing Saturday’s men’s slalom. He had a well-publicized run-up to the Vancouver Games, leaning on the kindness of strangers in Mount Washington, British Columbia, and other stops where he was housing, food, vehicles and free lift tickets for training.

“My goal,” he told Reuters, “is to try and beat some other countries that have snow. If I ca­n take down a few, I’m happy.”

Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Nkrumah-Acheampong moved to Ghana with his family as a 1-year-­old, then to Zambia and Nigeria, back to Ghana and finally to England in 2001 to pursue a master’s degree. There, he took a job as a receptionist at an indoor ski park and got into ski racing. Now, he’s Ghana’s first-ever entry in the Winter Games.

Encouraged by the sport’s international federation, which lends financial support, training camps and modified Olympic qualifying criteria to nations new to skiing, guys like him have swelled the slalom fields of the Games. Six other countries in addition to Ghana -the Cayman Islands, Columbia, Montenegro, Pakistan, Peru and Serbia – are represented in the Winter Games for the first time. All sent Alpine skiers, and five sent only those skiers. Saturday’s tentative slalom start list counts 105 skiers from 57 countries. (USA Today)

Your town/village

Write a description of a sightseeing trip in your town/village for a tourist brochure. Write about

  • the area in general,
  • 3 significant landmarks,
  • accommodation and catering possibilities that might attract visitors.

Write about 110 words.

Welcome to my town Riga. My town is a capital of Latvia and it has nearly 1 million people living here.

Here are a lot of interesting places to visit, but the most significant I think are Statue of liberty, St Peter’s Church and Old town. All this places are located in the centre of town, so it would be easy to visit all of them.

In Riga are a lot of places to stay and eat. The most popular hotel, I think, is Radisson. There are some small hotels in Old town too. There are also a lot of restaurants, which offer different kinds of food, from fast-food, to specific national foods, like sushi. I also recommend to visit “Lido”, which is located on Krasta street.
