Awards

The name of the meet, “GoldenSprint,” is one of Frimpong’s nicknames he earned when racing as an illegal African immigrant in the Netherlands. His Dutch coach, Sammy Monsels, gave him golden track spikes after his first Dutch National win. The fastest men’s and women’s sprinters at the GoldenSprint Challenge will follow Frimpong’s footsteps and take home a golden spikes trophy.
