Doris Nartey, a 30-year-old student at Methodist University has been crowned the overall winner of the first ever Ghana’s Strongest Woman contest organized by TV3 Ghana.
After a tightly-contested battle in the finals, the young lady managed to clock 95 points, inching above the second runner-up in the person of Victoria Agbeyeye who amassed 92 points in total.
Following that, Abigail Ofori came in third with 82 points, while Faustina Manu came in fourth with 70, according to an official report by TV3 news.
Nartey was able to win three of five events, including the Truck Pull. She was able to drag the 400kg vehicle in 12:01 seconds. It served as motivation for her to also win the Lua Lua event. However, she struggled in Giant Tyre Flip, completing five flips of the 200kg tyre.
The Methodist University student took home 10,000 Ghana cedis in addition to sponsor products. When interviewed after her victory, she gave an inspiring speech about how she was able to make it to the top although she had to combine both the demands of the contest and lecturers.
She, however, was quick to acknowledge everyone who supported in one way or another to making her dream come true.
“Since day one it has been tough for me, combining school with the competition wasn’t easy. I’m thankful to God for giving me this opportunity to be here, as well as to my team members [at] Jordan Fitness and coaches,” Nartey said.
