More than a lion helmet: The Olympic journey of Ghana’s Akwasi Frimpong

Theres a lion on his helmet, its mouth is open wide. A rabbit is escaping from the mouth. So, too, is Akwasi Frimpong, whose face is nearly visible behind a tinted visor. The image is based on the Rabbit Theory, in which a rabbit is in a cage surrounded by lions. When the cage opens, the rabbit must sprint. Frimpong likens himself to the rabbit. A former coach referred to lions as negative people and things going on in his life. For the longest time, Frimpong couldnt escape those lions. In PyeongChang as a Winter Olympian for Ghana, Frimpong finally is.
