14-year-old Lewis Appiagyei named on global power list

HONOURED: Lewis Appiagyei

LEWIS APPIAGYEI, 14, from Camden North London has just made it on to a global power list of Top 30 under 30 young Ghanaian pioneers and influencers.

Appiagyei has been blazing a trail as bright as the star he’s becoming here at home in London and abroad.

Last year saw him been interviewed by the American news network CNBC at the F1 Live event in London. He has also made his radio debut on ABN Radio’s show The Voice of Sport hosted by Rodney Hinds. Furthermore, he will soon be appearing on the BBC’s children’s program Operation Ouch.

In 2011, the British public was first introduced to a seven year old Appiagyei, who featured on the entire back cover of The Voice newspaper for winning a back to back race meet at the world famous race track Brands Hatch.

Since then there has been no stopping him in his pursuit to become an F1 champion just like his hero Lewis Hamilton. His journey to the pinnacle of his sport has seen him amass huge amounts of domestic and international trophies.

His resume and achievements are consistently on an upward curve, year on year. He trains as hard as an F1 driver now and as a result his fitness level is way above those of his peers, resulting in him holding his school’s 100 meter sprint record and winning a London Youth Games Fencing gold medal for 2017.

Appiagyei is extremely honoured to be recognised with such an accolade and has been inundated with well wishes from Hong Kong to Ghana, such is his growing status as a racing driver.

He will be visiting St Peter & Paul primary school where he was a pupil in April, to give a talk to the children to inspire them to dream big and reach for their goals. A similar visit has also been plan for a local kart club.
